What is a Support Group?

A support group is a safe space where individuals come together to share their experiences, challenges, and successes. It is a gathering of people who, though their stories might differ, share a common thread in their lives that brings them together for mutual support. Facilitated by professionals, these groups are more than just meetings; they are communities of understanding, empathy, and encouragement.

The Importance of Parent Support Groups

Parenting a child struggling with addiction is a path fraught with confusion, fear, and isolation. A parent support group serves as a beacon of hope in these tumultuous times. It provides a unique platform for sharing personal experiences and receiving emotional support from others who truly understand the journey. Such groups play a crucial role in alleviating the sense of isolation by fostering a network of support, understanding, and shared wisdom.

What to Expect in a Parent Support Group

Joining the Parent Support Group at Recovery Works, you will find yourself in a judgment-free and shame-free environment. It is a place where you can be open about your feelings, fears, and frustrations. Expect to engage in meaningful discussions, share your story, listen to others, and receive as well as offer support. Sessions often include educational components to equip you with knowledge about addiction, trauma, mental health disorders, supportive parenting, boundaries, coping strategies, and how to maintain your own mental and emotional health.
