Support Groups & Resources

Parent and Family Support Groups

Family with mom, dad, and two daughters smiling outside in a bright vivid clear blue landscape.

The Caron Parent and Family Groups are designed to meet the needs of those with loved ones who are currently in treatment, are using alcohol and/or drugs in a problematic manner, or are in recovery. Our mission is to help ourselves and in turn help others whose loved ones are struggling with addiction. The purpose of these groups is to provide family members a confidential, safe place to find support, education, encouragement, and hope on their own path to Recovery for Life. All 18 years and older are welcome!
