For families seeking healing in the face of addiction.
Family Support Center
The Family Support Center offers support, education, resources, and advocacy for those who have a loved one experiencing addiction. Our goal is to provide compassionate support, empower family members and friends to improve their quality of life, and gain skills necessary to cope with their loved one’s substance use.
Our Family Support Coordinator is trained in the Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training (CRAFT) model which teaches self-care and non-confrontational strategies to motivate their loved one to seek recovery.
We offer peer family support in-person and by phone, support and education on navigating the treatment systems, help with understanding how to support a loved one’s recovery, and a weekly support group meeting.
Family Support Meeting
Our group of family members, partners, and friends meet weekly every Thursday at 7pm on Zoom for our CRAFT family support meeting. We also host one meeting in-person each month. This is a closed meeting, so please reach out to us if you’re interested in attending. We look forward to meeting you!
If you have a loved one struggling with substance use and are ready for support, please call our Union County Helping Hands 365 24/7 hotline at: (855) 825-3275 or email us at email@example.com
