Family Education Program

Fifty percent of American lives are impacted by the addiction of a family member

When someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol, the disease affects the entire family. They need information and support and the Family Education Program is a place for them to turn. The program helps individuals and families recognize and address addiction problems in a spouse, parent, child or a loved one.

Facilitated by trained volunteers who have been through the same situation, this information and education-support program gives the participants the tools they need to address addiction in the family constructively and begin their own process of healing and recovery. The program covers:

- Week I: Understanding Addiction

- Week 2: Impact on the Family

- Week 3: Developing a Support Network

 There is no participation fee but pre-registration is required. To register call weekdays 9am through 5pm, 800-221-6333 or register online.   

PRO-ACT launched its first Family Program in 2001 in Bucks County. The group has served over 3,000 families throughout the Delaware Valley. There are eight locations - Bristol, Colmar, Media, Pottstown, North Philadelphia, Northern Liberties, Northeast Philadelphia and West Chester. If you are interested in training to be a volunteer facilitator email Noni West.
