“I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you.”

Joyce Meyer

THE IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY

Families provide participants with a sense of security, love, and belonging, and support them in providing their most basic needs. Blackwater Outdoor Experiences believes and follows industry research stating remarkable changes of an individual need to be supported by a changed environment and support system.

ENGAGEMENT

Families who are engaged in the participant’s life assist in providing structure, support, and guidance.

COMMUNICATION

Families who communicate effectively are able to effectively support each other and resolve conflict.

RESPONSIBILITY

Families learn to understand how their actions have helped shape who the participant is as an individual.

SELF-CARE

Families are taught skills to take care of themselves so they can effectively support their loved ones.

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT

Families engage in two family sessions a week during the expedition to focus on how they communicate to their loved one, their role in the family system, and how they can best support their loved one in their changes.

FAMILY WEEKEND

The last two days of the expedition engage family members and their loved ones in rebuilding their trust, communicating effectively, processing what each party has learned, and navigating what their plans for the future will entail.
