Admissions For Families
Sprout Health Texas believes that families are extremely crucial in the treatment process for addiction.
Not only can family help addicts get the help they need but they can also help support recovering patients when they leave our facility. Having a large support network significantly increases the chance at a successful and long lasting recovery. We want to educate families on the signs and symptoms of addiction as well as what causes addiction and how to resist it.
What Families Can Expect
Sprout Health Texas strongly encourages our patient’s family to read the Family Welcome Packet, which contains useful information, such as contact information, processes of admissions and intake, our treatment programs and the rules and guidelines each patient, as well as their family, should follow.
We have found that when family members are included in our therapy programs, they are able to mend their broken relationships with their loved ones. Some people do not understand that addiction does not just happen overnight and that it can be contributed to by family life or genetics. We want families to understand that they may have played in a part in the addiction; therefore, we want them to take responsibility for any damage that they may have caused.
We teach families how to understand the power of addiction in order to know exactly what their loved ones have been struggling with. We place a great deal of emphasis on helping families understand the power of addiction and how it affects their loved ones both mentally and physically. We want to teach patients and their families that addiction can be overcome and a long lasting sobriety can be significantly increased through the help of a supportive family or network. We will also provide counseling for families to help them cope with stresses of this situation.
Before attending counseling with our patients, we will speak with you over the phone to ask a number of questions. We want to learn about you as well as our patients in order to get a better understanding of their past as well as health and addiction history. Getting to know our patients better can help us create the best possible treatment plans that will work according to their personal wants and needs.
What to Bring
We prefer that families do not bring anything that will distract our patients from their treatments. The following is a list of acceptable items:
Warm Up suits
We provide undergarments, socks, robes and slippers.
In order for family and loved ones to attend counseling, permission to visit must be granted by patients. We want to make sure that their environment remains positive so they can achieve their desired success. Our treatment programs revolve solely around the patients to ensure their every needs are taken care of, which is why they have the choice to include their families or not. Although patients are given a choice to include their family, we highly recommend it. We want everyone to be involved in order to learn about addiction and the recovery process. The recovery process is the hardest part of becoming sober and it is important for the family to be involved, in order to provide support and love to our patients.
Co-Dependency Treatment Program
Mental Health America defines co-dependency as an emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship due to their inability to form healthy relationships. Those that are co-dependent form and maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and abusive. Co-dependency is mostly characterized by people in relationships with someone who is chemically dependent.
Co-dependent people often have low self-esteem, view themselves as victims and look for outside influences to make themselves feel better. Most co-dependents rely on substances to feel better or develop compulsive behaviors.
Sprout Health Texas offers programs that help treat the symptoms of co-dependency by breaking habits and providing solutions. It is important to include family in this process because most addicts are co-dependent on their families and vice versa. We can teach both our patients and their families how to break bad habits and learn new coping mechanisms.
