Family Class™

Family Class is our proprietary and personalized program to assist families in recovery.

It’s a six-month commitment to helping you, helping yourself and the ones you love to have More Good – Less Bad in life.

We developed Family Class nearly a decade a ago, and have come to deliver it in our secure online platform – allowing families and friends who are invited, learn and grow and do in making their own Change Plan come to life.

Family helps families recover strength and resilience thought to have been lost forever or impossible to achieve.

This six-month class meets weekly in our virtual classroom, connecting family from across the globe to get the help they need to fortify the family unit. You’ll find an engaging atmosphere, fine teaching, homework too, and a place to stretch yourself emotionally and spiritually.

Skills learned in Family Class help families and friends succeed in establishing healthy boundaries between self, and one another. Connected by a fierce love, but not fused, the family unit fosters a new capacity for honesty and forgiveness, while releasing old blame, shame and guilt.

This robust educational program provides ongoing support and education for families and loved-ones assists you in stepping out of your role as Cop, Banker, Apologizer, Counselor, or other role that you have stepped into during crisis. We give you permission to reclaim your healthy role as Wife, Husband, Parent, Friend, Brother or Sister.

We teach how to install a support system that is consistent and reliable; a structure where each family member grows, shares, discovers, and learns how to be the person they are meant to be in the family system.

By removing the addiction and the behavior, we strip away blame, shame and guilt and get down to business rebuilding the family through honest, trusting relationships assembled on clear compassionate boundaries and healthy role modeling.

Family Class Phases

"Family Class and Family Matters Retreat changes lives. Forever and for good.”

Brad Lamm, Founder

Tools learned in Family Class help families and friends succeed in establishing healthy boundaries between each other. Connected by a fierce love, but not fused, the family unit fosters a new capacity for honesty and forgiveness, while releasing old blame, shame and guilt.

Family Class gathers together family of origin and choice. It’s here that the voices that matter participate in our change-infused program each week. Our online classroom allows flexibility in technology, allowing family members to join online for a richer experience or on the phone for an audio connection. Either way, your Family Class Leader works through six months of our curriculum that covers the information you need to understand things like addiction and codependency, while learning and practicing new skills in communication and boundary setting.

Family Matters Retreat 

As your family progresses through Family Class, often times we discover stories and beliefs that need more concentrated time together to work through, figure out, or re-frame. Our Family Matters Retreat helps families bond around recovery and work through the past to begin legacy building for the future.

This three-day intensive takes place in your home or another location where everyone feels comfortable. We offer multi-family workshops quarterly hosted by Awakenings Change Retreat in Wickenburg, Arizona.

While we know that everyone is busy and schedules are crowded, sometimes the biggest gift you can give to yourself and your family is that of time together to explore the nooks and crannies of your collective Battleground Beliefs, stories, and the things you believe about each other and yourself.
