Family Services


At Right Turn, our approach incorporates family coping skills and strategies to ensure a better outcome. We understand that substance use, and other disorders, cause stress, confusion, and anxiety for family members. To address these issues, Right Turn’s family specialist offers an array of services designed to educate family members about addiction and mental health.

Right Turn hosts support meetings which are open to the public.

Bi-Weekly Family Support Group:

The Right Turn Family Support Group meets every other Monday from 7:00PM – 8:30 PM. The Family Support Group is facilitated by Woody Giessmann, CEO and Founder of Right Turn. This support group is for family members seeking professional advice along with peer to peer support. The group addresses coping skills and strategies for families dealing with a loved one in need of treatment, currently in treatment, or post treatment. This group is open to the public with a $5 suggested donation. For the meeting schedule please click here.
