Recovery is a systems theory which affects everyone including the addict, the nuclear family, and the subsystems which the addict works in and lives in (job, school, home and community). We will explore the concept of recovery, including:

Trust:  Stages of Trust; A process, not an event.  Continually evolving.   Communication breaks down: “walking on eggshells”

Co-Dependency:  Anger and frustration on the part of the loved one; and guilt and shame on the part of the addict.

Detachment/Self Care:  related to co-dependency.  Must be able to care for ourselves, not only focus on addict

Parent Speaks --how real, local parents have survived and evolved through the recovery process from distrust, to trust, to self-care, to caring for addict without being an enabler.

After Care & Clincial Support -- Exploring the role of clinical treatment at The Counseling Center at Fair Lawn, helping to expedite the process of recovery. Incuding Intensive Outpatient Group, Outpatient Group, Family Counseling, Individual Counseling / Individual work, and a review of Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT).

There will be a live and informative Q & A Session after the presentations and discussions.
