Parents and caregivers in recovery face the additional challenge of building strong, positive relationships with their children wile maintaining their sobriety, which can be both rewarding and daunting. Sober Parenting Journey provides a valuable source of fellowship and support and enhances awareness of potential triggers that may escalate relapse. In a safe and caring setting, you will explore past and present patterns of emotional regulation, compulsive thinking, and addictive behaviors that influence your choices. With hard work and honesty, you will create a new path that strengthens sobriety, accountability, and positive actions, while facing the daily challenges of recovery.
