We understand the devastating impact that drug and/or alcohol abuse can have on a family. Often times, families don’t understand the disease of addiction or how to talk to their loved one about their substance use. Or they don’t know where to turn for help.
Penn Foundation’s Recovery Center can help.

We offer Family Consultation to help families who have identified a loved one struggling with alcohol and/or drug abuse and don’t know what to do about it.
We also offer Mobile Engagement Services, a mobile outreach service in which therapists work with the family, employer, schools and other concerned parties to engage individuals who are resistant to treatment, meeting with them in the home and other nontraditional locations.
Our Family Education program is a FREE program held every Sunday that provides education about the disease of addiction. It is designed to assist participants in understanding how addiction affects family members and friends of addicted individuals.
For children who are impacted by a loved one’s substance abuse, we offer Camp Crossroads. This free, overnight weekend camp for youth provides a safe and caring environment for campers to talk about their family addiction and to learn problem-solving and self-care strategies.
