Learning About a Loved One’s Addiction
Family and Friends is a weekly meeting that helps family and friends that are concerned about a loved one’s alcohol and/or drug use learn about addiction and what it takes for addiction treatment. It can help to answer questions such as: How do you know when someone is really addicted? Did I do something to cause this? Why do they keep using when it hurts them and me? What can I do to help? Is there hope for recovery? What can I do for myself and our family to feel better? Research based information is given through educational presentations, handouts, and video materials. Meetings are facilitated by experienced and certified substance abuse prevention or treatment professionals.
