I am here provide you education, support and the peace of mind to allow yourself to begin to heal. You can learn more about my background and experience below.

This video will help you understand the process of admission, help you understand what the first few days at RCA will look like for your loved one, and highlight some of the family programs we have to offer here at RCA.

Additionally, here are a few commonly asked questions you may be wondering that we can answer for you.

Family Support Groups, Therapy, Webinars & Events for Addiction

Family support groups and family therapy for addiction are fundamental to recovery. Education is also a key component of the recovery process; that’s why I have created weekly live webinars, events, and more on topics to address the unique needs of families impacted by addiction and how to best help a family member struggling with addiction

These webinars and events are opportunities for you to learn valuable information in the safety of your own home. Additionally, these live webinars will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have for me. Learn more about the dates of our upcoming webinars.

4 Pillars of Family Programming

CONNECTION
We’ll help you stay connected with your loved one while creating your own safe space. We know both the family and the patient need their own kind of support.

HEALING
The healing process begins when we understand the disease of addiction, take the feelings of stigma, guilt, and shame, and replace them with empathy.

KNOWLEDGE
Understanding the behaviors of addiction and the impact they have is key, because education is everything. When you know better, you do better.

HOPE
Hope is the beginning of recovery. You can still be angry and still have hope that things will change or get better.
