Family Addiction Counseling Program

Crossroads Centre Antigua recognizes that healing from alcohol and other drug dependencies happens best with the involvement of families. Families and concerned others play a significant role in the recovery process.

“I can’t thank everyone enough for the care and information you have shared with my son and myself. I feel I have gained new tools to better communicate my feelings and concerns regarding my son’s alcoholism/recovery with him and for my own self-care and recovery as a mother of an addict. Forever grateful to all at Crossroads.”

Carmen A. Los Angeles

Nutritional Assessment

Learning how to make the right dietary choices is key to developing a healthy lifestyle. All clients meet with the Crossroads Antigua nutritionist to assess their nutritional needs. Our nutritionist and culinary staff work together with our clients to help them achieve balance through nutrition.

Massage Therapy

The use of massage therapy is particularly ideal during the detoxification process and assists clients with symptoms of sleeplessness, anxiety and muscle discomfort.


Yoga is a system of exercise, breathing and meditation, with the goal of achieving harmony in body, mind and spirit. We have found that a yoga practice helps bring the body to a state that is receptive to healing and rejuvenation.

Auricular Acupuncture

Acupuncture has many benefits, including assisting with detoxification, anxiety, sleeplessness and in helping clients to better experience the body, mind and spirit connection.

Spiritual Development

Our spiritual counselor is available to meet with clients to provide additional guidance on recovery and to act as a gentle facilitator on the spiritual aspects of 12 Step programming.

Individual and Group Therapy

Our therapists are trained in evidence-based treatments for addiction and co-occurring disorders. We utilize 12 Step work, conventional therapies, experiential therapy, art therapy and trauma work, as well as adjunctive holistic groups such as exercise, aquatics, acupuncture, massage and yoga.

Trauma Therapy

Clients participate in two extensive didactics on the nature and treatment of trauma. For those individuals who need more intensive work, individualized treatment plans can be designed to begin the healing and recovery process.

Experiential Therapy

We encourage off-site volunteer opportunities, supervised excursions and AA meetings for our clients to relearn basic social experiences in the real world, while still receiving safe and sound therapeutic support.

Holistic Approach to Pain Management

Crossroads offers a holistic approach to pain management for clients who are recovering from addiction. The program includes experiential therapies and a therapeutic team that works with clients to create a customized program to address their physical limitations and needs. By taking a comprehensive approach to pain management, Crossroads can help clients find long-term relief from their symptoms while also supporting their recovery journey.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Skills training in cognitive restructuring is essential to help clients recognize and change negative thoughts that lead to catastrophic feelings and extreme destructive behaviors.

Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention

Mindfulness, through the practice of meditation, enhances self-acceptance and compassion, present-centered awareness, psychological flexibility and gratefulness. These are key components of a healthy and well-grounded recovery.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Our therapists assist individuals in developing greater psychological flexibility and reconnecting with their values in recovery. We use these values to help clients commit to re-engaging in their lives in a more meaningful and productive way.

Seaside Therapy

Every week clients are escorted to a beach for an afternoon of healthy and sober recreation. More than just a social outing, seaside therapy allows clients in early recovery to create positive experiences and memories in sobriety.

Our Facilities

Families learn about their role in client recovery, relationships, the disease of addiction, and how improving communication can greatly increase the likelihood of a lasting recovery.

We offer accommodation recommendations for those participating in our family program. Our facility boasts breathtaking views, a private swimming pool, and comfortable social areas, but space is limited. Off-site accommodations are also available at an additional cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

A family member who has a loved one in active addiction or recovery OR Anyone who wants to learn more about the disease of addiction OR Anyone who wants to resolve relationship issues involving addiction or codependency.

Loved ones of the chemically dependent person are involved in the addiction experience in much the same way as the addict / alcoholic. If we grew up in a family system where there was addiction, or other forms of dysfunction, we learned how to cope and survive at a very early age. Unknowingly, we continue to operate with these survival behaviors in present relationships until we come to realize how these responses may not be conducive to satisfying relationships. With this new understanding, we can begin to identify and make changes that can improve the quality of our life.

The presence of addiction within the family system can lead to relationship and communication breakdowns that accelerate the progression of the disease. That’s why loved ones should play a significant role in both the treatment and recovery processes.

This 5-day program combines individual and family therapy sessions with educational presentations and group discussions.
