Do I need to stay the whole time?

 Your program cost covers that entire week. If you choose to not stay the whole week, there is not a discount. Your family will benefit most by staying the whole length of the program 

Is there any guarantee that my family will improve as a result of the program?

 The success your family will experience depends on how committed each family member is individually. There is not guarantee. Relapse is likely to occur but we will arm you with tools to help you work through them quickly rather than continuing the cycles that you will learn to interupt. 

What if we need further assistance after the program ends?

 We have resources that we can refer you to.  We will also be providing you with some support after the program.
