Program Overview

Westover considers addiction as a family disease, and family members and friends may also need support.  The program is designed to help friends and family members recover from the harmful effects of living in a substance dependent environment

Co-dependency is a condition whereby family members or close loved ones of an addicted person adapt to the dysfunction in the family by developing patterns of living, which become detrimental to them personally. These patterns of behaviour become subconscious and automatic. 

ASSESSMENT AND ADMISSION 

This phase involves a brief initial conversation, followed by a scheduled, detailed phone interview with us. This is to determine your specific needs, and provide assessment locations. Admission is offered for this program twice a month.
