Family & Friends 3

Addiction is a family problem.

There is HOPE for you and your loved one.
Living with addiction can be a challenge.
We welcome you and are here to help with those challenges.
Join us for our Bi-weekly Wednesday Night Family & Friends Meeting on April 25th
At the Locke Library, 3083 Yonge St.   Time: 7-8pm
SMART Recovery Family & Friends program is a scientific evidence based secular alternative to Al-Anon and the Johnson Intervention. Our method is based on the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy tools of SMART Recovery and the positive reinforcement components of CRAFT Community Reinforcement Approach & Family Training. This strategy assists those who are willing to make a change, helps build the communication dynamic in the family and leads to conflict resolution associated with addiction.
Family & Friends handbooks are available for $20.
