Santé Center for Healing continues to vigilantly assess and monitor this dynamic situation. We follow best practices and make decisions based on the recommendations and guidance provided by the international World Health Organization (WHO), the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), CARF International, the Texas Department of State Health Services, and the Denton County Health Department. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene and continue to implement well-established infection prevention protocols throughout the recovery continuum of care. “As it has always been at Santé Center for Healing, the safety of our clients, families and team members remains our highest priority,” adds Santé COO Sam Slaton, M.ED., LPC-S, MBA, MHSM. Just as it has been for our 24 years providing recovery, we remain committed to quality treatment, health and safety. Know that when you admit to Santé Center for Healing, your health, safety and long-term recovery is priority today and every day.

Addiction impacts everyone in the family unit. Family therapy offers the opportunity to have someone listen to how the client’s actions have impacted the lives of those around them. If relational problems are driving loved ones away, intervention strategies are formulated with the client’s recovery in mind. This relationship between the family member and therapist leads to a more rounded plan for change. If the family member feels the need to have more extensive therapy sessions, these are offered and can be discussed with Santé’s Family Therapy Coordinator. Santé truly believes that the family plays an integral part of addiction treatment.
When possible, every effort is made to re-establish and strengthen the client’s bonds with their primary support system, including improved communication with appropriate disclosure and amends. When appropriate, a collaborative effort is made to establish rules for the client’s return to the home environment. When the client is unable to return to the home, guidelines are established for continued involvement and contact with loved ones. Santé Center for Healing provides referrals to families for support as needed. The family receives a letter, questionnaire, and a workbook upon the client’s admission into addiction treatment with options to help identify the healing process that will be extended to them.
