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?

If so, you are experiencing some of the same challenges that most family members experience when navigating the disease of addiction. Coping with the challenges associated with a loved one’s substance use disorder can be complicated. Join us for this half-day workshop where we will 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 and multiple resources to support your journey toward healing and resilience.

Who Should Attend this Program?

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