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 on the same journey, 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 includes 3 two-hour sessions spread over three weeks and covers the following topics, including ample time for discussion:
There is no fee to attend, but pre-registration is required. To register call weekdays 9am through 5pm, 800-221-6333 or register online.
