At Parenting Journey, we believe that all parents and caregivers want to be strong, positive role models. First and foremost, we believe that the best way to raise hope and build stronger family relationships is to start by identifying your strengths and build from there!
Parenting Journey In Recovery
Offered in English
In Parenting Journey in Recovery, a small group of parents and caregivers meet for 2 hours a week for 14 weeks. The program includes activities, discussions, a family-style meal, and complimentary childcare.
Substance use disorders are complicated and difficult to overcome. Parents and caregivers living with addiction face the additional challenge of building strong, positive relationships with their children while maintaining their recovery, which can be both rewarding and daunting. Parenting Journey in Recovery provides a valuable source of fellowship and support and enhances awareness of potential triggers that may escalate re-occurrence. In a safe and caring setting, you will explore past and present patterns of emotional regulation and thoughts and behaviors related to addiction that influence your choices. With hard work and honesty, you will create a new path that strengthens recovery, accountability, and positive actions, while facing the daily challenges of living with addiction.
Location: Somerville, MA
