Strengthening Families Program

Mariners Inn’s Strengthening Families Program is dedicated to educating and counseling the families of clients in substance abuse treatment. To strengthen family support for the client and prevent relapse, the Strengthening Families Program holds orientation workshops for family and friends to educate them on addiction and the treatment process, as well as counseling in which family members reflect and discuss the changes they need to make in support of the addict’s recovery.


The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is an evidence-based program designed to reunite clients with their families, educate their children on the disease of addiction, and teach parenting skills.
