What Are Family Services?
Family and loved ones are the most important people to an individual in treatment. We want families to feel like Farnum is just as much their program as it is the clients. On the weekends family members of the client are invited to visit and participate with their loved one in treatment.
Farnum’s Outpatient Services also has an Outpatient Group which offers education, support, and Resilience in Recovery and Families. These groups meet at our Outpatient Services facility on Wednesday nights from 5:30- 6:30 pm. 700 Lake Ave. Entrance A, Manchester, NH 03103.
On visiting day we expect each family member to participate in family education prior to the visit. 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.
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.
What to Expect
The goal is to establish positive relationships with all of our clients and their family’s, so when they are ready to leave our facility, they have the strength, love, and support they need to be successful.
There may be times during their stay with us that a family meeting is requested and we will accommodate this for children and adults.
We offer adult visits on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm.
Farnum has an open meeting for families to continue participating in after their family member has left treatment.
