Family Wellness’ interdisciplinary treatment team provides all core treatment components. These components are the basis for all of Family Wellness Recovery Programs. In addition, each Recovery Program stream — Substance Abuse, Sex, Gambling, and Dependent Personality Disorders — has additional components that are detailed in the sections that follow. Programs are further customized to suit the individual client, his or her family members and, if applicable, the employer. If treatment by a medical specialist is required, Family Wellness has an extensive network in place for supplemental assessment and treatment.
Treatment components may also be accessed on a short-term, individual basis outside of Family Wellness’ Recovery Programs. Family Wellness is also affiliated with Better Days Ahead, a residential facility in Bacolod.
