  • Reduce relapse rates
  • Improve long-term outcome for individual and family

The ARISE® Model:

ARISE® is based on Transitional Family Theory and Therapy(2) (also Evidence-Based, Best Practice). It is the parent of all the current integrative family therapy models(3).

  • Views individuals and families as inherently healthy and competent
  • Understands that clients and families have experienced serious trauma, loss, and stress
  • Removes blame, shame and guilt, restoring a sense of competence and hope
  • Is invitational and non-secretive, helping clients and families to identify and change their intergenerational patterns
  • Guides the family in resolving their grief, and re-establishing healthy, sustainable lifestyles
  • Protects current and future generations

This is achieved by:

  • Overcoming barriers to treatment engagement, understanding specialized and varied populations
  • Building a philosophy of trust, empowerment and health across personnel and programs
  • Improving flow from engagement and intake through treatment to discharge and aftercare
  • Creating a collaborative continuum among staff, clients, families, referral agents and outside providers
  • Understanding the relevance of families to addiction origin, prevention, treatment and aftercare
  • Enhancing the alumni program with family involvement for improved outcome


  • Become a Certified ARISE® Facility with facility-wide training
  • Train specific staff in applicable components of the ARISE® Model (e.g., intake and admissions only, or clinicians only, etc.)
  • Have a significant number of the staff attend the ARISE® Continuing Care with Intervention training whether or not a few of them become Certified ARISE® Interventionists

For details of facility-wide training and our specific courses, please review the appropriate sections of the training deck.

Our program encourages:

  • Flexibility to suit each specific facility
  • Individually designed training and consultation
  • Specialized training focused on populations served

Fernandez, Begley & Marlatt (2006) found that ARISE® is most successful because:

  • Is invitational, non-secretive, graduated and cost-effective
  • Relies on the inherent strength, motivation, and resilience of the family
  • Focuses on individual AND family long‐term, intergenerational recovery and healing
