Family Education Program

Drop AMA’s — Send families to us and
do what you do best

Treatment centers are fighting against a rising demand for services and increasingly fractured families.

It has become increasingly difficult for treatment centers to staff programs, especially for roles such as family education.

That’s where Tipping Point™ Recovery comes in

Our organization provides weekly third-party family education groups to treatment programs at all levels of care to help them meet, and exceed, the standards for licensure and provide the highest quality of care to their patients and the supporting family system.

Our groups provide weekly ongoing family system support and educational training to help your clients’ families support your clients while in your care. While there is no requirement for members of these groups to pursue other resources, we can offer everything from individual family coaching and group coaching, to webinar-based educational programs, along with a wide variety of professionally led treatment support options, such as; Family Intervention, Family Contracts, and Family System Case Management. When families have access to these recovery tools, it increases the chance of success for your clients and reduces the number who leave against clinical advice (ACA).

With our comprehensive family services, you can save not only on staffing costs, but also on time spent navigating family struggles. You’ll simply provide a direct link to our group for your clients’ families and support systems upon admission, and leave the rest up to us.

Oaks Recovery

I saw a huge need for the family to be engaged in the recovery process of their loved one, but I quickly learned that it would require developing an entire team and department to provide the quality of recovery needed for families, and we were not equipped. Our partnership with Tipping Point™ Recovery has been the perfect solution.”


Our process includes sitting in on two (2) staff-led meetings to learn more about your facility and program objectives so we can best serve and support your mission.
