Please join us in the groups provided at no additional cost (with the exception of our Relationship and Recovery Group) for family members and special friends of HCC’s clients. You will find answers to your questions and build a network of support during this time of transition and growth.
Family/Friends Support Groups: These groups are for your family and friends only and do not include HCC Clients. They are facilitated by HCC staff and provide a safe place for your family and friends to share and learn about addictions, while in the company of others who have been through similar circumstances. Your loved ones will learn healthier ways to cope with stresses and ways to be supportive of your recovery.
Client and Family Therapy Groups: These groups are for both you and your loved ones to grow and heal together. You must be at least in the Key Holder phase of treatment in order to participate in these groups.

Intensive Family Weekends are held about every 2 months. You will receive an invite about a month in advance for this event. Intensive Family Weekends are comprised of lectures, personal stories of recovery, and group work.
Family and Couple Therapy.
At HCC your relationship with your family is very important to us. That’s why we also offer Family and Couple Therapy with our Family Program Coordinator, Kelly Morrissey, MA, IMH, IMT, who specializes in couple, family, and children therapy. Once you have reached the Key Holder phase of your recovery program, you are eligible for up to three family or couple therapy sessions with your loved ones. These are included as part of your recovery program. If you choose to continue sessions after your initial three are competed, a standard fee will apply. All fees are discussed directly with Kelly Morrissey during the first therapy session.
