Growing up in a family with parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or siblings who have substance use disorders puts children at greater risk of developing a substance use disorder and/or other behavioral health issues, such as:

  • Low self-esteem/loneliness
  • Aggressiveness
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Poor academic performance
  • Relationship problems

Hope for Recovery

This program educates children about the disease of addiction and helps them to understand that they are not responsible for the disease or for “fixing” it. Program leaders create a safe and caring environment that gives children space to talk about how they feel and learn that it is okay to trust others. The program also helps them to:

  • Process their feelings about how substance use disorder has impacted them, their family member, and their family unit as a whole.
  • Understand treatment and recovery.
  • Identify a support system.
  • Develop healthy coping and problem-solving skills.
  • Make healthy choices.
  • Communicate effectively with their family members.

Program leaders incorporate activities, including crafts, team-building exercises, recreation, and educational groups. At the end of the program, each family receives a list of resources that can provide ongoing support and education about substance use disorder for their child.
