Family Support Line
What is FSL?
The Family Support Line is meant to provide professional guidance and direction for family members of a loved one that refuses mental health or substance abuse treatment, or family involvement in treatment.
Family often ask...How can I offer support? How do we establish rules and boundaries? What can I say without fussing and fighting? What do we do if the condition worsens? Why can't he/she change? Talking with a professional can help give the family tools and a skill set to best support their loved one. The hope is to unite and empower family members for the battles ahead, while maintaining their own life balance.
Office visits or teleconferencing available.
