The Olive Prime Family Clinic

The Olive Prime

Family Clinic

Background and Rationale

The Olive Prime Family Clinic is a program borne out of the desire to build capacities of family members and the general public to support and influence healthy recovery of those recovering from addiction or substance use disorders and those who require professional help for suspected substance-related problems to seek appropriate and timely help.

Our experience at the Olive Prime Premium Psychological Services over the past years of mental health service delivery has been very robust and revealing. This has given us the opportunity to relate closely with the assertion that addiction is a family disease. This is because when one member of the family becomes addicted to substance(s), it directly or indirectly affects every other member of the family physically, psychologically, emotionally and financially, causing enormous distortions in the family’s dynamics.

The Olive Prime Family Clinic is anchored on the belief that the family is a system, and whenever a part of the system is affected, the whole system requires treatment so that no room is left for any dysfunction within the system while treatment is ongoing and recovery is taking place. It is therefore imperative to accord the family unit the needed priority during treatment for all mental health conditions.

It is hoped that when family members have appropriate education and treatment for themselves, they can play significant roles in the patients’ recognition of their problem and acceptance of treatment and recovery, serving as a robust support system during recovery. Also those individuals in need of professional help can also be supported and referred to professionals where they can receive appropriate assessment and treatment for their mental health or substance-related disorders.
