New Chemical Dependency Group for Parents

Time:  Weekly Group – Wednesdays 6-7.30pm

Group size:  12 participants

Population: This chemical dependency group is available to mothers, fathers, caregivers and parents of all ages looking to increase their awareness with their relationship to their substance of choice and how that effects them directly and indirectly.

Overview: This group provides an in-depth exploration into communication skills, life skills, and thought processes associated with having healthier, more effective relationships in recovery.  We specifically address the impact substance use has on parent/child relationships and explores healing those relationships.

Clients learn and practice effective communication skills, life skills, and identifying maladaptive behaviors to build healthy relationships with themselves and others while working towards ending destructive ones.

This group provides support to help increase long-term recovery and relational wellness. The group also teaches awareness of risk factors, triggers for relapse, and skills to cope with challenges before and during the recovery process.
