Learn about how families can cope with addiction during online seminar on April 17

To assist families grappling with the addiction of a loved one, NJ Connect for Recovery, a free, confidential call line for addiction and recovery support, teamed up with Robert Meyers, Ph.D., co-author of CRAFT, an evidence-based intervention program geared toward families of substance abusers, to host a three-day family training June 5-7 in the Monmouth Junction section of South Brunswick. The training, which hosted more than 40 attendees including family members, NJ Connect for Recovery staff, and other leading addiction service providers, learned evidence-based practices and new strategies to help families identify how they can play a powerful role in helping engage a loved one in addiction treatment. The hotline is 855-652-3737.

The Center on Addiction, Partnership for Drug Free Kids and SAFE Project will hold an online seminar at 1 p.m. on April 17 about the impact of COVID-19.

Social distancing measures and anxiety about COVID-19 present challenges for families already dealing with substance use and/or mental health issues. The meeting will consist of a panel of representatives from organizations that serve families affected by substance use disorders and/or mental health issues, followed by a question and answer session.

 

Panelists will include representatives from Not One More Alabama, Utah Support Advocates for Recovery Awareness, Hope Sheds Light and Attack Addiction.
