Celebrate A New Life, a Christian drug rehab program, is one integrated component offered at Hope by the Sea, a Southern California residential addiction treatment center. This past October Hope by the Sea introduced their new Family Program and Celebrate A New Life’s clients’ family members eagerly participated. “Addiction is a disease that affects every member of the family, including extended family members. A successful recovery often begins when parents, children, spouses, partners and siblings can meet together and learn about the disease and what to expect as their loved one goes through treatment and begins to find lasting recovery,” reports Robert (Bobby) Nicholl, Celebrate A New Life’s Director of Admissions.

Hope by the Sea’s Family Program is offered one weekend per month, with the opening session beginning at 10:30AM Friday and the closing session ending at 4:30PM Sunday. The cost is $500 per family (up to three participants) and each additional participant is $150. Group sessions are guided by our professional staff, including Sharon Stafford, PhD, Dr. Quinlan Strong, Cyndie Dunkerson, Nicole Cable, and Jose Majias. Out of town family members are offered discounted rates at a number of nearby hotels.

“Going forward the goals for our Family Program participants are clear: Learn about addiction as a disease concept; identify family roles in addiction; recognize and prevent enabling addictive behaviors; move past denial, shame, guilt and fear; define and conceptualize codependence; practice healthy methods of conflict resolution; establish healthy boundary systems; create a relapse prevention plan; practice Al-Anon recovery principles; and promote ongoing recovery and healing,” says Mr. Nicholl, “Attending a Family Program can be a life-changing event, a time for each family member to focus on themselves, to learn, to relax and discover serenity.”
