The greatest lie every substance user tells themselves is, “I’m only hurting myself.” Every parent and family member of an addict, alcoholic, or substance user knows: addiction and substance use affects the whole family.
The Insight Program offers parent support groups as an integral part of its drug and alcohol rehab and counseling services. Being a parent of a young person struggling with addiction or a substance use disorder is extremely scary, saddening, and even infuriating. Our support groups function to provide you with answers, hope, and relationships with other parents who “get it.”
Our support groups meet once per week, and feature interaction with other parents who are on the same journey as you. Often they are a few steps ahead of you in the process and can provide hope and solutions. These parent support groups are included as part of a young person’s drug and alcohol treatment. They may also be open to parents whose children are not currently in treatment or recovery – please contact the Insight Program location nearest you to ask for details regarding that city’s weekly parent support group meeting.
