The True Meaning of Connection

Wednesday, July 28th 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The True Meaning of Connection

The True Meaning of Connections is part of the specialized series of Caron’s Family Support Services. Any family member who has been impacted by a loved one’s substance use disorder will benefit from participating in this webinar.

They say addiction is a disease of isolation. This is true for the person suffering from the disease of addiction and their family members! Almost every form of recovery – AA, NA, Refuge recovery, SHE Recovery, Celebrate recovery and individual therapy – is based on the principle of connection. This webinar will explore the science behind the importance of connection in the recovery process and how to develop a meaningful connection with oneself and those around us. Participants will leave with real life exercises to increase connection, self-care and vulnerability.

A Zoom link will be sent upon registration.

Sponsored by the generosity of Lauren and Jay Springer.
