This study aims to examine the completion rate of individuals in a residential addiction center when the individual's family members or significant others participate in the therapeutic process, contrasted with those who have no family participation. Data was analyzed from 274 patients enrolled in a residential addiction treatment program. These patients were divided into two groups, one having had family participation during treatment, the other having no family participation. These groups were analyzed for successful program completion across various characteristics. Outcome analysis reported a 9.62% increased program completion rate for those with a family member or significant other involved in a seven-day family program.
