Supporting your LGBTQIA+ Loved One in Recovery

How to support your loved one and find support for yourself in your own recovery journey.

Does your loved one identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community? Have you wondered about best ways to support them and their recovery journey? This program will give insight into the unique treatment and recovery needs for individuals in the LGBTQIA+ community. We will also discuss ways family members can support their loved one in recovery, while also finding supports for themselves.

Who Should Attend this Program?

Any family member who has been impacted by a loved one’s substance use disorder will benefit from participating in this webinar.

Sponsored through the generosity of Jay and Lauren Springer.
