Strategies for Family Recovery

Strategies for Family Recovery

Have you struggled with setting healthy boundaries with your loved one who is in recovery? Do you find it hard to communicate your feelings or stick to the boundaries you tried to establish? If so, you are experiencing some of the same challenges that most family members experience when dealing with the disease of addiction.

Coping with a loved one who has a substance use disorder is complicated. Join us for this one-day workshop where we explore substance use disorder as a chronic disease, as well as discuss strategies to effectively communicate your needs and maintain boundaries that are comfortable to you. You will leave with a solid foundation to support your journey toward healing and resilience.

Who Should Attend this Program?

Any family member, 18 years and older, who has been impacted by a loved one’s harmful substance use will benefit from participating in this workshop.
