Family Clinical Day

At Ten16, we value family and believe that you play a critical role in the recovery process of your loved one.

Family Clinical Day takes place every other Wednesday. During this time (and with permission from the client), we invite one family member to come to our Midland rehab facility and participate in a day of services.

What is Family Clinical Day?

We at Ten16 believe that addiction is a family disease and that the effects of substance use disorders are far-reaching and deeply rooted.

We are committed to helping families better understand the disease, and to assist in providing opportunities for education, healing, and restoration. The simple fact that you are reading this information shows that you want to support your loved one—and we appreciate that!

To help families participate in recovery, we have incorporated Family Clinical Day into our residential rehab program. Here’s what you should know about it:

  • Every Wednesday: Family Clinical Day is a day set aside on alternate Wednesdays for one family member to come to the facility and participate in a day of services designed specifically for them.
  • Mandatory part of treatment: We believe so strongly in the importance of family involvement in the recovery process, we have made Family Clinical Day a mandatory part of the treatment process for our clients. Each client in our care will be expected to make provisions for Family Clinical Day at the beginning of treatment. We reserve the right to restrict general visitation on Sunday for any client who opts not to participate as required.
  • Client-led process: Family members may not request to participate in Family Day, but instead must be invited by their loved one (the client in our care). This is not intended to be exclusive. However, we wish to assist our clients in making decisions that will give them the best chance at long-term recovery. The participating family member is selected by the client, in consultation with their therapist, based upon appropriateness and opportunity to support the client in their transition back home.

If you have questions or concerns about the family visitation policy or procedures, you may contact our Residential Services Director, Holli Carter, at 989.835.3466 to address them. You can also fill out our online contact form at any time.

At Ten16, we appreciate your willingness to consider how you might play a positive role in the recovery process, and we are here to help you.
