We strongly encourage Ocean Drive families to commit to a three-day family workshop. A necessary extension of family counseling, the workshop is an invaluable opportunity for families to immerse themselves in restorative clinical work alongside their loved ones.
Though curriculums vary from family to family, the program typically includes individual, group, and couples work. Tailored to each family’s needs, clinical interventions educate family members on the loved one’s disorder; establish roles; define personal recovery goals; and teach Ocean Drive’s clinical philosophy on family restructuring. Families have full access to all interventions and services during the workshop.
Families also enjoy plenty of time to socialize with clients during their stays. Families and clients share meals, schedule date nights, and relax together at the residences or on the beach.
Though scheduling is flexible, the family workshop typically occurs two weeks after the client begins treatment. Families can arrange to stay in one of six nearby hotels and can either request transportation assistance from Ocean Drive or rent their own vehicles. The Family Workshop is included in the cost of admission.
