BALM Family Recovery Education Services for Treatment Centers

Research shows that the family plays a critical role in a loved one’s recovery from Use Disorders (UD). Yet, with more than 15,000 treatment centers in the US alone the person with the UD often gets upwards of 40 hours of individual and group therapeutic interventions during each week of their treatment while many treatment centers still offer families  little more than 1-2 hours per week and/or a weeklong or weekend retreat for their loved one’s entire treatment stay.

And who can blame those centers? The cost of creating a strong family recovery team can be daunting and insurance companies often do not reimburse for family services.

BALM Family Recovery Education Services for Treatment Centers.

Our services work in tandem with treatment centers nationwide. Treatment centers that hold a BALM® License, have access to our online learning management system (LMS) which includes live training and support as well as more than 300 recorded interviews with experts, specifically on Use Disorders. BALM® also has a team of  International Coach Federation (ICF) Certified Family Recovery Life Coaches who can work with individual families as one-on-one coaches.
