We discuss a few of the responsibilities that the facility, family, and client can balance together in order to motivate change along the recovery journey.


  • Creating a safe environment for individuals to allow them to properly learn how to better regulate their triggers, discomforts, and life challanges.
  • Engaging with the family to hold boundaries when their loved one is experiencing these discomforts.
  • Prepping the client for the realistic process of recovery.

First and foremost we’re there to provide safety, but the point of providing safety for clients is to allow them to experience discomfort in a way that is stable and secure enough for them to work through that and develop the skills needed to face life on life’s terms.
