Helping Families in Need

All families “have something,” this commonly quoted phrase reflects the high incidence rates of behavioral health, developmental and cognitive issues that arise across generations. To maximize the chances of successful recovery, families, and their support team members (ex. financial and legal advisors) will require professional guidance.

A family crisis can be the result of the turmoil created when one or more members of the family are:

  • Misusing substances such as alcohol or other recreational drugs
  • Abusing prescription medications
  • Spending or gambling compulsively to the detriment of others and their financial well-being
  • Struggling with a mental health issue such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar or other mood, thought or process disorders
  • Exhibiting symptoms of cognitive decline
  • Demonstrating signs of an eating disorder and/or problematic relationship with food
  • Refusing to attend school or engage in other productive activities
  • Participating in an abusive relationship and or affiliating with a cult association

Addressing a Family Crisis

The goal is to protect positive family connections. At O’Connor Professional Group, we take a unique approach that prioritizes evaluating concerning behaviors and strategizing the least intrusive way to manage them.

While interventions may seem like the “go-to solution,” they can often have severe and traumatic consequences for family systems. We use a range of solutions to depend on factors such as age, life stage, previous efforts, risk level, and family system disruption.

Family Crisis Services Include:

  • Benefit: Family has the opportunity to air concerns in a constructive format and develop a unified message
