Dear Family Members, Friends and Colleagues,

We would like to take a moment to invite you to participate in our Virtual Cirque Lodge Family Program.   Existing research has shown that addicts and alcoholics whose family members have participated in the treatment process have better outcomes and less recidivism than those who did not have family involvement.  Ordinarily this program would be an onsite in person experience, but with our ever-expanding steps to respond to COVID-19 we have shifted the program online, wherein you may watch live lectures and participate in group and family counseling sessions. 

Our family program typically runs from Tuesday through Friday.  Dates for these family weeks are listed below.
