Frequently Asked Questions

Parents or caregivers who have a loved one with a substance use disorder.
The services are free and available as long as needed. This could be as simples as one phone call or ongoing supportive help.
We utilize the CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) method which is and evidence-based model with three specific goals. Reducing the loved ones’ drug use, influencing the person to seek treatment and improving the functioning of the family members by making positive life changes.
CRAFT teaches family members how to care for themselves and in turn they may be able to help their loved one. Research studies have shown that parents who do not get their loved on into treatment still benefit by reducing their depression, anxiety, anger and physical symptoms.
