Our meetings are exclusively for parents & caregivers with teen and adult children who are experimenting or struggling with substances, or in early recovery.  

This is not a therapy group, but we do offer guidance using evidence-based techniques and we offer a connection with others in similar circumstances.

If you need one-on-one help during the meeeting and it’s not a crisis, please consider our other free services for more support.  If you have an emergency during the meeting, please leave the meeting and call 911.
