Tough LoveJanuary 16, 2012 0 Comments
Insight in North Carolina is where I was introduced to "Beyond the Yellow Brick Road" by Bob Meehan. While Meehan's direction is controversial, the direction towards tough love can be very helpful for parents. Definitely well worth the read.
With facilities in North Carolina and Georgia, Insight is a comprehensive program designed to assist individuals, between the ages of 13 and 25, in the beginning stages of their recovery. I.O.P. consists of group counseling, individual counseling, and family counseling. Group sessions are four hours per day, five days a week. Parents are involved through both weekly sessions with a counselor and weekly parent meetings. For individuals successfully discharged from I.O.P., a twelve week After Care Program is offered.
