Recovery Basics for Parents
A one day training designed to help parents gain a better understand the recovery process.
Over the last two years we have been overwhelmed with requests from parents who want to understand and support the recovery of their children and young adults. We are thrilled to offer this unique learning opportunity, designed specifically for you. We hope it will answer many of your questions, as well as provide you with practical tools to use in support of your loved one. Much like the journey of recovery, this training provides you with an emotionally rich experience… whether you use it to improve your family relationships or apply it to your own recovery… you will be transformed.

- Define and increase fluency in the language of recovery
- Build capacity to understand and support a child/young adult in his or her recovery
