Family participation is critical to a student's success at Chrysalis. Parents are part of the treatment process, and are actively engaged in the program experience. Yes, parents get therapy assignments, too! Our clinical team works closely with students and their families to create opportunities for direct and open communication through weekly family therapy and social calls.

In person family therapy sessions are conducted when you visit campus, and at the fall and spring family workshop. These workshops are not only an excellent time to grow with your daughter, but also to connect with staff and other families. There is power in solidarity and shared experiences.
“At first it was, ‘Here’s my daughter, now fix her.’ With time and your guidance, I have come around to, ‘How much I can impact not only my daughter’s health, but my own?’ Now, not only am I getting my daughter back, but I am also finding myself.”
