The 16-week Parent Aftercare Program is provided to all alumni parents at no additional cost. Following their son’s treatment at Muir Wood, parents are invited to attend this weekly, 75-minute, aftercare support program.
The program is designed to provide parents with support and resources to continue with the positive gains made during treatment. Led by Rawland Glass, MSW, LCSW, recipient of the Outstanding Clinician Award in 2012, this curriculum-based, online program allows a weekly platform for parents to receive needed support in a variety of ways, including – an ongoing discussion of potential challenges, determining strategies for dealing with and responding to specific dynamics in the family, emphasizing the use of the many tools developed in residential treatment to manage relationships and emotions, the exploration of conflicts and identification of solutions, and to provide the support parents need to remain on track with their families individualized recovery plan. Each online session is followed by an email with additional material, resources, and course work.
