We believe family is an important part of the treatment process. Initially, we ask that family give their loved one time to focus on his needs and acclimate to the treatment program.

For the first week in the program, participants will not be able to make phone calls as they are getting acclimated and settling into programming. After the first week, participants will receive daily phone privileges contingent on participation in groups and therapy. Phone calls are limited to 20 minutes long, and calls will be made from a landline in the residence.

At the Greenfield Recovery Center, we focus on helping family members understand the role they play in their loved one’s addiction and their necessary steps needed to support them in achieving tech-life balance and recovery.

Families can expect a phone call within 24 hours from the participant’s primary therapist. Families will then schedule a weekly call to discuss the participant’s progress. There will also be the option for weekly family therapy sessions as well.

Participant communication devices including, but not limited to, cell phones, Smartphones, iPads, laptops, tablets, will be collected upon admission and placed in secure storage until Participant has completed the program and/or is permitted moderated and limited use as per care team and Participant’s progress in the program.

Families should plan on staying for two hours to assist with the enrollment and admissions process.
