The entire CAST staff meets to discuss the incoming client’s needs and as a team puts together the program structure and pairs appropriate professionals when necessary.

Family Education

Our ground breaking family component sets up apart from other programs. Research has shown that individuals who have family participating in their own parallel recovery increases the chances that the addict or alcoholic will stay sober two to three times. We also believe family participation is critical. For that reason we provide similar support, education, counseling and therapy for family members who wish to participate. Participants learn the following:

・ Al-Anon and 12 step support provided
・ How to effectively communicate concerns
・ How to identify relapse behavior in themselves and their loved one
・ Understanding co-dependency and the difference between love and enabling
