Recovery Oriented Community (ROC)

ROC Helps Families Build A Solid Foundation For Sobriety

Addiction is a family disease. Malvern understands that the disease of addiction has no limitations and impacts everyone involved, not just the person struggling with dependency. Whether it is a husband, wife, child, friend, family member, or colleague, our goal is to improve his or her understanding of the disease of addiction and provide support services for both the addicted loved one and family members as they embark on their journey of lifelong recovery.

Malvern Institute designed the Recovery Oriented Community (ROC), an ongoing network of support for the recovering individual and their family during recovery. ROC offers a two-pronged approach designed to support the patient and the families, including specific, personal resources focused on helping families navigate their own recovery. Upon admission to treatment, families have a unique opportunity to become members of the ROC community. ROC empowers families to develop healthy boundaries, identify recovery next-steps, and connect with other resources tailored to meet each family’s unique needs. ROC is a dynamic, state-of-the-art tool utilizing texting, online support, and phone calls. ROC helps families get and stay connected with other families through recovery-oriented resources and weekly Family Support Meetings, facilitated by ROC family members.
