Family Resources For Addiction Treatment
As a premier luxury rehab center, we have experience working with celebrities, executives and other professionals as well as their family members. We recognize that professional success does not exclude someone from the pull of drugs and alcohol. In fact, many of our affluent clients have extreme levels of stress in their daily lives.
Whether it is the constant oversight and expectations of stockholders or professional teams, or the expectations of peers or school administrators, everyone in your family faces a certain level of pressure. Sadly, even some of the most successful among us turn to alcohol and other substances as a means of escaping the stress. And before long, they find that their usage has turned into an addiction that may be overwhelming the rest of their life.
While some of those suffering from addiction may still be able to function in their professional capacity for a time, the level of personal anguish and struggle that accompanies addiction can spiral until their dependence completely controls them. Their most important relationships will be destroyed as well. At The Dunes, we intimately understand this process and the means of recovery as well as the critical need to help support family members through the healing process.
The Dunes believes that family and friends are important to your recovery. Visitation is every Sunday from 12:00-4:00 PM. The gathering is welcoming and informal. We also serve a healthy and delicious brunch buffet. Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit in the summertime and your boots in the wintertime so you can enjoy our beautiful grounds and amenities. Let us know about a birthday or special occasion and we will prepare something to help you celebrate.
Family counseling is highly encouraged and usually arranged about two weeks into your stay at The Dunes. We will work with your family’s schedule to make it as convenient as possible or even arrange a phone or skype session for family members who cannot travel to East Hampton.
