At Pacific Grove Hospital, our 68-bed behavioral health hospital treats people from all walks of life – some have depression, other have anxiety, others are battling addiction – the one common denominator: each has a support group, family and/or loved ones. At Pacific Grove Hospital we understand that as a loved one of someone who is mentally ill or chemically dependent upon drugs or alcohol can be one of the most painful experiences of your life. Watching your loved one struggle as he or she attempts to overcome his or her addiction or mental health disorder can be agonizing. We understand that the pain you’ve undergone is like no other.
We’re ready to help. Pacific Grove Hospital fully understands that the sorrow, hurt, confusion, and frustration you feel needs to be addressed and treated as we work toward healing your loved one. As you will be one of the main supports during your loved one’s treatment and recovery, we work to include you in your loved one’s care from the beginning. You’ll be an integral part of the treatment team and we make sure you’re included in every step of the recovery process.
As we believe that essential family support is based upon knowledge, empathy, and understanding, which is why we offer family treatment sessions each week for you to work with your loved one and a therapist. Through family sessions, we’ll work to reestablish and rebuild relationships that may have been strained due to your loved one’s mental illness or chemical dependency. You’ll learn more about recovery, addiction, and ways you can help support your loved one as he or she embarks upon his or her journey toward recovery. Family sessions will also provide you a safe environment in which you’ll be able to share your feelings about your loved one’s addiction or mental health disorder in a safe, trusting environment. At Pacific Grove Hospital, we treat the family of our clients in the same way we treat our clients – as part of our own family.
