Support for “The Other Child”
Wednesday, February 2nd 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Substance Use Disorder affects the entire family, including parents, children, and siblings. Siblings are often forgotten in treatment and education around addiction, leaving parents to struggle to find a way to support their other child(ren) during a chaotic time.
This webinar will focus on ways that parents and/or caregivers can support the other children within their family system, to provide hope, healing and recovery to the entire family.
Who Should Attend this Program?
Support for “The Other Child” is part of the fundamental series of Caron’s Family Services. This webinar is intended for parents or caregivers who have additional adult children (18+) that are or were previously impacted by a siblings’ substance use disorder.
