Addiction and the Family
Speaker: Chris Geyer, PAL Michiana
Free Zoom Webinar
August 24, 2023, 5-6 pm Eastern
Parents of Addicted Loved Ones is an education and support group reaching out to families of those who have loved ones struggling with substance use disorder. Often, the family doesn’t know where to reach out for help. They suffer in silence and shame while watching their loved one spiral out of control due to their SUD. PAL brings HOPE, education, and support to these struggling families. Join us to learn more about how families can begin their own journey of recovery, begin to find HOPE and learn about things like… “Healthy Helping vs Enabling” and “Delayed Emotional Growth”. The education and support provided through PAL can help change the way we relate to our loved ones and our hope is that when we change…. our loved ones may reach out for help and begin their own journey of recovery.
