Empowering Children with the Courage to Talk, to Trust, and to Feel

One of the most difficult experiences of dealing with addiction in your family is dealing with your own anxiety. We know that anxiety flows through systems like electricity flows through a circuit. It’s contagious, free floating, and it has to land somewhere. If we can work on befriending our own anxiety and regulating our own nervous system, then we put “circuit breakers” into the family system and we invite that in our family members as well. We truly do have power in our family systems just not the way we may have thought. Learning how to be in a healthier relationship to our own anxiety is perhaps the most important things that we can do for our whole families recovery.

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