At Shepherd Hill, education is the first of our four primary treatment goals. We understand the importance of being educated on addiction as a disease. Knowledge allows you and your family to get the most out of treatment.

Family Education

Family members are expected to attend a cycle of lectures and other educational opportunities to learn about addiction and recovery. Each lecture is followed by an Al-Anon group session for all family members and concerned friends.

Saturday, Ask-the-Doc

These sessions are held the second and fourth Saturday of each month, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the Shepherd Hill Auditorium. Patients, families, and other interested persons may ask questions of a physician specialized in the field of chemical dependency.

The goal of these sessions is to help those in attendance increase their knowledge and understanding of the chronic, progressive nature of the disease of addiction.

Ask-the-Doc is free of charge and open to the public.
