Rosecrance Helps Families with Teens in Recovery
Teens face many challenges in today’s world, and some of these can lead to substance abuse. Families need a full understanding of these challenges in order to help their teens deal with the tests life can offer.
At Rosecrance, we provide a range of family support services to help your family take an active role in your teen’s recovery. These services include counseling, support, education, and information. With our help, your entire family can learn about the disease of addiction and discover ways they can work together to help your teen achieve lasting recovery.
Families get support at Rosecrance for Recovery
Families need to know that they are not alone as teens recover from the disease of addiction. Our staff can arrange to have your family talk with other families who are going through similar experiences. You can learn what has worked for others and develop a strategy that makes sense for you. Family support groups are held one hour before visiting times.
Arranging family visits
Family members can take part in regular visiting hours throughout the week. Visits are scheduled by treatment group.
Weekly family sessions
Teenage patients and their family members come together weekly with their addiction counselor to talk about goals and to learn more about the chronic disease of addiction. These sessions are scheduled individually for each patient.
Family relapse prevention plan
Each family needs to plan ways to keep their teen from experiencing a relapse. During family sessions, your Rosecrance counselor will work with you to develop a plan that will take you from the start of addiction treatment through discharge. This prevention plan will help your family support and maintain lasting recovery — for both the client and the family.
Family education weekend
Rosecrance offers weekend programs that can help your family learn more about the disease of addiction. The programs give an overview of treatment and explain how to start the recovery process. Some of the goals of the weekend include:
Making sure each family member’s feelings about their loved one’s addiction are accepted
Educating family members that addiction is a brain disease
Helping the family understand how the disease may progress
Introducing the family to the 12 Steps of recovery
Discussing the concept of enabling and how enabling affects addictive behavior
Learning about positive communication and the detachment process
Helping family members identify healthy teen behaviors and see what lasting recovery can look like
Explaining the relapse process and how to keep it from happening
Sending a message of hope throughout recovery
The family weekend schedule is as follows:
Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sundays, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We also sponsor Al-Anon meetings prior to weekday visits and encourage all families to seek community support services. For more information about weekend programs, call (866) 330-8729. For area hotel and lodging information for our Illinois locations, click here to find maps, directions and hotel information.
Therapeutic leave of absence
When family members successfully complete the family education weekend, and the patient has achieved the level of “sponsor” in his or her treatment group, the patient and family can participate in a therapeutic leave of absence. This is a three- to six-hour block of time spent together off-campus.
Treatment discharge planning
Planning for discharge is very important. This service helps patients and families connect to social, educational and recovery services in the community.
Prevention and Early Intervention Program (PEI)
The Rosecrance PEI Program is an evidence-based alcohol and drug education program designed to provide education, support, and direction to teens and their families who may be at risk of more serious involvement with alcohol and other drugs. The PEI Program is now offered virtually; click here for more information.
Frequently asked questions about family involvement in Recovery
Q: Are family support services mandatory?
A: We strongly recommend that families take part in our recovery support services at Rosecrance. Studies clearly show that the more the family is involved in treatment, the better the outcome for the teen — and the family. [Source: SAMHSA, “Families Coping with Mental and Substance Use Disorders“]
Q: Is there a fee for any family services?
A: No, there is no additional cost for any family services. We do, however, ask for a small donation to cover the cost of food during family education weekend.
Q: Who should attend/participate in family services?
A: Family teen addiction treatment support services are provided for all family members — including aunts, uncles and grandparents — if they are a strong support to the patient. We discourage participation of small children during the family education weekend. Only individuals listed on the approved visitors log will be able to take part.
Q: How do I prevent my loved one from relapsing?
A: Rosecrance offers many services to help guide you as you support your loved one’s recovery. Talk with your teen’s counselors to learn more.

Find new reasons for hope with Rosecrance teen recovery services
The teenage years are never easy. Adolescence is a time of complex emotional change, for teenagers and for the family.
The teenage brain is wired to test boundaries. During these years, young people experience dramatic brain development that can make them more vulnerable to substance abuse or bring mental health issues into a more pronounced state. Whether these changes are sudden or gradual, it’s scary to watch the child you know fade away. We’re here to help.
Rosecrance is a national leader in adolescent behavioral health. We’ve been caring for the unique needs of teens and young adults for more than 100 years. Our comprehensive substance abuse and mental health services help accelerate progress and create a recovery roadmap that goes beyond initial treatment in recovery, because that’s the key to long-term success in recovery.
Residential Recovery Treatment Centers for Teenagers
Some teens may benefit from the intensive approach of our residential program, located at the Rosecrance Griffin Williamson Campusin Illinois, near Rock Cut State Park & Chicago Rockford International Airport.
Our treatment environments include a full school curriculum, recreation, experiential therapies, art, educational lectures, process groups, recovery meetings, 12-Step groups, life skills, coping-skill groups, and both individual and family counseling.
The recommended length of stay is 42 days, but the length of recovery treatment is based on the individual’s needs. Group counseling is held six days per week. Counselors and case managers complete at least two individual treatment sessions with the client, the teenagers, and one family session with the family and client each week.

Each client’s treatment program is designed to include a mix of group and individual therapy.
Environments that inspire healing for teenagers
The physical environment plays an essential role in the treatment and recovery process. Rosecrance residential facilities, gardens, and experiential therapies have been thoughtfully designed to help teens and young adults benefit from the healing effects of nature, light, and art.
Waterfalls, boulders, trees, and a pond teeming with koi invite clients and families to immerse in the garden at our 50-acre Rosecrance Griffin Williamson campus, home to our residential adolescent addiction recovery and mental health programs. Located an hour northwest of Chicago, clients can access music, art, and horticulture therapy to help them discover new passions and positive tools for managing their condition over the long term.
Experts devoted to adolescents and their recovery

At Rosecrance, each client is cared for by a team of licensed specialists who have committed their careers to supporting the unique needs of adolescents. Together, the team designs an individualized treatment plan that draws on the expertise of counselors, physicians, psychiatrists, dieticians, nurses, chaplains, physical fitness instructors, teachers, and social workers.

Combined Treatment for Dual-DiagnosisTeens
Mental health and substance use disorders often co-occur, especially in teens and young adults. Families facing dual diagnoses may struggle to find treatment programs that address both simultaneously, even though these diagnoses can be so intertwined. At Rosecrance, our focus is on lifelong recovery, which is why we believe it’s vital to combine treatment for substance abuse and mental health into one individualized treatment program for teens and young adults, ages 12 to 20.

Educational opportunities (secondary, higher and vocational)
Interpersonal skills training
Life skills development
