Sunrise Residential Treatment Center has always been proud of the amazing work they do with the families they serve. As a Relational Dialectical Behavior Therapy program (DBT) they recognize that the skills their girls learn don't just benefit them but the entire family system. Sunrise has worked hard to help families shift their roles, rules, and relationships in order to find healing and lasting change. Coupling Family Systems Theory and Relational DBT allows their families to build their "life worth living".
This year, more so than ever, Sunrise has not only been able to continue their work with families in the greater United States, but they have had the opportunity to help families from countries outside the U.S. including Canada, Brazil, Mexico, and Isreal. "It has been such a cool experience to work with families from all around the world and help them find hope for healing for their daughter when they may not have the resources available to them in their country," said Amy Bowler, Sunrise Admissions Counselor. "We have really enjoyed creating opportunities to help them hold onto their culture, while helping them adjust to ours. One of the ways we do this is by doing a 'Culture Night' where one of the girls helps prepare her favorite dinner from her country for her house." A student from Israel, spoke of what the transition was like for her, "The cultures are very different which was hard to adjust to and being here in a secure environment helped me a lot. I like how the staff do their best to understand my culture and try to find ways for me to live it while at Sunrise."
Sunrise is grateful to be able to help these girls and their families find healing. They look forward to the families they will help in the future and will continue to make strides to be the positive resource their families all across the globe need.
