Family Advice

Sunrise Recovery Ranch provides expert advice for you or your loved one’s family. We will walk you and your family through every step of the process and provide you with the confidence to seek the treatment you or your loved one needs.

Our Advice for Families

We have been treating men and women’s substance abuse at our California drug rehab center since 1986. Our staff is familiar with how the family of a person who is drinking or abusing drugs can be torn apart.

There are the mothers and fathers who suffer through sleepless nights worrying about the well being of their son or daughter. There is often a spouse or significant other who has experienced the hurtful and irresponsible actions of the individual whose behavior is shaped by his chemical dependency. Children of parents who are alcoholic or abusing drugs often exhibit mood disorders and suffer greatly because of the abuse and neglect that occurs in a home where drugs or alcohol are being abused.

The mothers, fathers, and spouses of the clients who arrive here in sunny Riverside, California know that underneath the careless and hurtful actions of the substance abusing individual is their child, husband, wife,  boyfriend or girlfriend whose life is controlled by their drug of choice. The stress and hopelessness that comes as a result of caring for someone who is suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction is damaging and can destroy lives.

Structure in Treatment

As soon as the client arrives here in Southern California, they will be screened and assessed by our intake department and an admissions counselor will begin the process of designing an individualized treatment program.

Every man and woman at our treatment facility has tasks that they must complete with all of the other clients which helps foster responsibility and accountability. Our experience has shown that by keeping all of the clients working together forms a bond of fellowship – even with the staff (many of whom are in recovery themselves).

When the clients wake up at 5:45 am and are taught to make their bed neatly, their day starts on a positive note and their self esteem begins to build immediately. Throughout the day they continue by participating in positive recovery oriented activities, including physical activities that break up the workshops, support groups, and therapy sessions. The clients will be required to keep their area clean, and wash their own laundry correctly. Other household chores help build structure into the clients life which greatly aids in recovery.

A Program of Recovery – For the Entire Family

The treatment program at Sunrise is designed to provide help for the entire family system which is integrated into the recovery process. For the first two weeks the man or woman who is admitted to our recovery program will not have telephone access as part of his treatment program, but the case manager and treatment team will be in touch with the family of our clients immediately and often.

The clinical staff at our Riverside drug rehab for men and women is here for you to patiently answer questions you will have about your loved one’s recovery. We also have twenty three years of building a nationwide network of mental health professionals and have the ability to refer you to highly regarded therapists, doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and addictionologists in your area should you seek further treatment or information. After the initial “no contact” period the family is welcome to come to Southern California and attend group family counseling sessions at our treatment facility. We feel that the family can be an integral part of the clients  long term recovery program and we welcome the family into the “wheel of treatment.”

No More Sleepless Nights

Men and women who come to Sunrise Recovery Ranch will quickly clear their mind of the drug that is controlling their lives and see that they must work on their recovery to begin a new life that is greater than they could have ever imagined.

While the client is at our treatment center, the family can rest assured that he is in a safe and supervised location without access to drugs or alcohol. After two weeks the family has the option of visiting with their loved one at our treatment facility in Riverside to participate in the recovery program and be a part of this new life free of drugs and alcohol.
