Chemical dependency is often referred to as a Family Disease and can present unique problems within the family unit. It can and does envelop the entire family. Therefore, IVRS likes to include the family in the treatment process whenever possible. We also offer education classes to family members who would like to visit someone in our residential programs. Attendance at these classes help the visits to be constructive and safe for everyone and are designed to give you an idea of what to expect from a loved one in rehabilitation.
