Families are the most important people to an individual in treatment. We want families to feel like The Farnum Center is just as much their program as it is the clients. So what we have done is create programs on the weekends and invite family members to participate. We offer adult visits on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00pm to 2:30pm. The visiting day is determined by the unit your loved one is on. We also have children visits so the client can see their children with the support of staff.
On visiting day we expect each family member to participate in family education prior to the visit. Why? It is important to your loved ones that you understand what is happening with them and when they leave our facility we want everyone to be at least in the same book, if not on the same page. We also have an open meeting for families to continue participating in after their family member leaves treatment.
There may be times during their stay with us that a family meeting is requested and we will accommodate this for children and adults. The goal is to establish positive relationships for all of our clients so when they leave our facility they have the love and support to be successful.
