Family Education Program

The Family Education Program is a collaborative effort dedicated to providing quality education and support to families of substance users in our community. Currently, we meet virtually.  Visit us on Facebook to access meeting links and find out which topics we will cover each week! 

We are free and open to anyone with an addicted loved one. Arm yourself with the education, support and resources to cope with a loved one’s substance abuse and make peace with the past and present.

We invite men and women at any point during their personal recovery journey to live in one of our safe and affordable apartments.
