Update: Virtual Family Education & Support Groups

At a time when many families are experiencing adversity amidst colliding COVID-19 and opioid epidemics, AdCare is providing complimentary substance use education monthly and support weekly for families.

AdCare’s Family Education Program, October 28, 6:00-7:30 p.m. and the 4th Wednesday of Every Month,
focuses on how substance use often affects the entire family to the breaking point, impacting the stability of the home and the overall family dynamics. “AdCare’s Family Education Program is designed to help educate folks about the disease of addiction,” says AdCare clinician and program presenter, Martha Deering, MA, LADC-I, CADC-II, LRC, CRC, QSAP. “As individuals progress from initial use to misuse to substance use disorder, changes occur in brain structure and function that drive the transition from occasional to controlled to chronic, compulsive use.”
