Be A Loving Mirror
At Family Recovery Resources, our mission is to help all families blaze the trail to recovery in their homes. All of our programs are based on the Be A Loving Mirror (BALM) Method of Family Recovery. BALM empowers families to transform their inner attitudes and their relationships with their loved ones. As a result, their struggling loved one has their BEST chance at recovery. We achieve our mission through two fold: (1) through training coaches, counselors and other professionals who want to work MOST effectively with families and (2) through coaching and educating families determined to help themselves AND their loved ones have the BEST chance of recovery.

Be A Loving Mirror is a phrase often heard at the end of BALM calls, but it is so much more than a slogan. BALM is a way of life that involves a two-pronged approach to family recovery that allows family members to get their lives back AND encourage their loved ones to get THEIR lives back, too!
