"No one is addressing the families of addicts, or as I refer to them – the silent sufferers," said Tim Schnellenberger. "We created this program to educate and immerse families in the teachings and tools that will help them help themselves and their loved ones, who are suffering with addiction. Addiction is a family disease, and our hope is that our Foundation and this retreat, in particular, will assist all of those suffering."
What: Schnellenberger Family Foundation: Family Educational Weekend Retreat. A comprehensive three-day recovery-focused Family Retreat is based on the principles found in the Schnellenberger Family Foundation's Family Weekend and Weekly Educational Webinar Series. The retreat will cover the neurological and physiological aspects of addiction, as well as the impact substance abuse has on both the addict's and their loved one's mental, emotional and spiritual health.
Specifically, the retreat will:
- Chart the impact that a loved one's addiction has on a family's well-being;
- The role each family plays in a loved one's addiction;
- How best to counter the impact and redefine the role;
- Provide the tools necessary to restore mental, emotional and spiritual health on both sides of the recovery equation; and
- Ensure families are fully equipped to help their loved ones achieve long-term sobriety.

"We are just a proud dad and mom wanting to be a part of something bigger," said Howard Schnellenberger. "I am retired and now have the opportunity to do something beneficial for others.

About Tim Schnellenberger
Tim Schnellenberger is the Founder and CEO of Recovery Boot Camp Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center and Healing Properties Sober Living Community. Schnellenberger founded Healing Properties in 2002 and, after 5,000 clients and 12 years of successes, he saw a dire need for a long-term, 12-step emersion addiction treatment center. In 2015, he opened Recovery Boot Camp, which is designed to meet that need -- head-on.
Schnellenberger first began his work in the sober living and rehabilitation industry as a way of giving back and helping others the way he had been helped earlier on in his own life. Schnellenberger has consequently created a no-bullshit environment that focuses simply on helping men get sober. According to Schnellenberger, to remain a tenant, one must be actively attending NA/AA/NA meetings, utilizing a 12-step sponsor, working the 12-steps, interacting with sober supports, and implementing the daily living skills necessary for long-term recovery. His tenants are carefully screened and closely monitored to ensure that they are both motivated and serious about their recovery from chemical dependency.
