Often times, when women come home from recovery, families expect things to return to normal. Lynnel encourages families to come together and realize that recovery is a process, and that it will take time.
Sanford House urges families to never give up hope and never pass judgment. Lynnell also urges family members to seek help while their loved one is going through the recovery process. At Sanford House, Monday night is Family Night. This allows families to set expectations and express emotions.
