Families are facing unprecedented challenges due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19. In response, we invite you to join our new online support community for parents and caregivers who may have children experimenting with, or dependent on, substances.
Staff clinicians and specially trained parent coaches will host a series of live online gatherings to share insight and ideas on managing teen and adult children during this unique time. These gatherings are an opportunity to find support and connection along with tangible guidance on topics such as accessing treatment and planning for an adequate supply of medication.
