Whats Love Got To Do With It? Everything!

The dates for the three part series are May 11th, 18th and 25th.

This series will explore our patterns of love and relationship and how those patterns impact our family recovery. Everyone gives and receives love in different ways. Managing our emotions throughout the recovery journey with our loved ones can be difficult, so it is important to be able to recognize our own patterns and verbalize our own needs as part of our emotional wellbeing.

The 5 Love Languages” will be discussed during the program. Please register by April 23rd to receive your copy in the mail.
