Family & Friends 3

Addiction is a family problem. We welcome you twice a month on Wednesday evenings to share concerns and learn more about the process of addiction recovery. Our Family & Friends support program is science and evidence based and is lead by a volunteer (CRAFT) Community Reinforcement Approach trained facilitator with lived experience.
Together we learn the positive reinforcement approach proven to be helpful when building communication in the family. No need to register or sign up. You can listen or participate – it’s up to you. Come and join us!
