Family Recovery


Many families never thought drugs would be an issue in their lives, but now they are—and they’re at a loss as to what to do, who to talk to or where to turn. Addiction is a family disease, and often times we become as sick as our loved one who is struggling with addiction.

A family recovery coach can help family members find peace and regain their lives.
