At The Hills we are invested in the family growing and recovering as a whole.
We provide in depth parenting classes focusing on:
- Age appropriate disclosure
- Balancing family and recovery
- Addressing anxiety
- Developing coping skills for frustration and feeling overwhelmed
An addicted family member affects everyone by disrupting the emotional stability of the family.
Many families with histories of substance use, addiction, alcoholism, pain management and/or psychiatric issues struggle to balance individual needs and set healthy boundaries.
Many in the recovery field have said for years that addiction is a family disease. However, most families were confused about that statement and saw it as a way for the addict to rationalize their behaviors.
We are now able to understand that there are very clear neurological changes going on in the brain when any kind of addict (be it gambling or substances or food) is in their active addiction.
Education regarding neurotransmitters and brain function is crucial to family members who are trying to understand what changes the brain is making in response to the addicts use and recovery.
The Family Education program covers the role of support groups (Such as 12 step programs)for the addict and their loved ones.
Other lectures include family roles and rules and expectations in the alcoholic family.

Life is a learning curve. Developmentally speaking, the transition from adolescence to adulthood can be difficult for young people.
College life is supposed to be the “best of times” but with psychological disorders, financial stresses and pressures, and an explosion in prescription drug use, College can prove to be a difficult time in a young person's life.
At The Hills we understand the dilemma that families and students may experience and we can help.
Whether the choice is to take a leave of absence or to have a sober companion at the campus, each student is equipped with their own individual learning plan.
Balancing academic achievement along with a recovery schedule can feel overwhelming to a newly sober student. This is why we are here to help negotiate that process.
Our signature groups are tailored to help young adults face the challenges of the world today and develop coping skills.
Many of our staff and alumni returned to academic life and obtained degrees during their recovery. They are always on hand to help students with support whether it be academic or emotional.
Because of the flexibility of our daily scheduling the student's needs are always met. Parents can rest a little easier knowing that The Hills is here to help their child achieve their life and academic goals.

Studies have found that a large proportion of those struggling with drug or alcohol addiction also struggle with a psychological disorder.
More than ten million Americans are affected by drug addiction in combination with an emotional disorder, of which the most common are depression, bipolar, generalized anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder.
For those that have co-occurring disorders, it is imperative that they are both treated. Without treatment of chemical dependency along with the psychological disorder, the chances of relapse are great.
At The Hills, we offer unparalleled treatment which consists of treating both the mind and the body. Our experienced staff understand the complexity of co-occurring disorders, and the recovering addict is presented with a program of recovery designed specifically for their needs.
The importance of treating the person as a whole has been proven, and we strive to ensure that all of the individual’s issues are fully treated.
