§ 10:162-6.11. Family involvement
Each client may be requested to have one counseling session with a member of his or her family or a friend. The counselor may make every effort, with the client's consent, to involve the family in the treatment process, including one session on family aspects of alcohol and drug abuse. If necessary, marriage and family counseling shall be available to the client and can be substituted for regular group sessions. If family or friend refuse to attend, or the client does not desire to reveal that he or she is in treatment to the family and friends, this is not non-compliance on the part of the client. Self help group information should also be made available.
