Families in Recovery

Developed in collaboration with the Union and Snyder Commissioners, the 17th District’s Treatment Court team, and people impacted by Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), SVM’s Families in Recovery Program engages non-profits, faith-based communities and community partners to take a whole family/community approach to supporting individuals with OUD.

The program provides people with OUD and their families with: family meetings, family support groups, family education, and connection with community support and service providers. The goal is to increase support of, and engagement between, the whole family impacted by OUD, improve participants’ outcomes for long-term recovery, and improve family outcomes.

The Families in Recovery support group is a group for family members and friends who can share their experience, strength, and hope with one another, and find the tools they need to deal with their loved one’s addiction. This program will help the family members of people with OUD find lasting freedom from the negative effects of drug addiction, whether their loved one gets better or not. Living with or loving someone through OUD/drug addiction/alcoholism is one of the loneliest and most isolated places to live. The Families in Recovery program will provide the safe environment families need, to realize they are not alone and find hope. Free childcare/child-friendly programming is always provided. 



The program will help people engage with: 

Natural Family/Community Support System

Treatment & Other Service Providers

Individuals Addressing Their Addiction

For individuals on Treatment Court, the program works with participants and their families to engage and expand their natural support systems and to ease the transition between life in and after Treatment Court.
