This program, run by the Jim Gilmore Jr. Community Healing Centers of southwestern Michigan seemed worth drawing attention to. Addressing the needs of families and children affected by their loved one’s addiction has always been a shortcoming of most treatment programs, us included. There are lots of reasons, some legitimate, others less legitimate. However, we’re doing more than ever in our programs — Daybreak’s family counseling; residential’s family programs and family counseling; parenting groups; supervised child visits; countless phone calls with distraught family members; and the community education program.

I have been an addiction professional and social worker since 1994. I started blogging in 2005 as the Clinical Director at Dawn Farm. I no longer work at Dawn Farm and am now the Director of Behavioral Medicine at a community hospital, and a lecturer at Eastern Michigan University’s School of Social Work. Views expressed here are my own. Keep in mind that the field, the contexts in which the field operates, and my views have changed over time. View all posts by Jason Schwartz
