TWC Family Retreat program provides education and activities to nurture productive change that improves communications and self-esteem, reduces conflict, and helps navigate the addiction recovery journey.

All family structures are warmly welcomed. Adolescents especially may feel a great deal of stress within a family. We offer outdoor activities, coping skills, and counselling to strengthen the parent-child relationship. Family dynamics play a central role in our emotional health, and need to be factored into any recovery plan. Addiction and dysfunction affect the entire family system, adding a level of complexity of healing and wellness.

When addiction invades a family, everyone suffers.  This weekend workshop family retreat will provide family members that are impacted by the cycle of addiction at a deeper understanding of this illness, how it affects them, and how their efforts to help sometimes lead to the problem getting worse.

Through education, experiential exercises and group process, we will focus on what to do and what not to do. And we will provide participants with tools that can help them remain hopeful and move forward with their own healing recovery process.
