Program targets families to halt addiction cycles

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.
