PARENTS TOGETHER AND PARENTS FOREVER
Both are educational/mutual support programs for parents of youth and young adults.
- Parents Together is for parents of youth 12 to 24 years of age.
- Parents Forever is for parents of youth and young adults (18 and up) who are abusing substances.
Parents Together is a professionally facilitated education and support program for parents who are experiencing challenges while parenting a teen. Parents come to the group with a wide range of issues. Many parents reaching out for support are feeling guilty, blamed by others, isolated, and at a loss as to what to do. Parents describe their youth as defiant, depressed, angry, suicidal, abusive, and unmotivated.
Participants learn effective strategies that can lead to improved relationships, decrease conflict in the home, and improve communication within their family. Parents also learn about adolescent development, the importance of self-care and that they are not alone in their parenting challenges. This is all provided in a confidential, non-judgmental environment.
Parents Forever is a mutual support group for family members of adult children who struggle with substance abuse. Parents Forever provides a safe and confidential place for parents and family members to come together and share their experiences, wisdom, and courage.
