Local Support Group Meetings

Families Facing Addiction is a support group for those with loved ones struggling with addictions.  Meetings occur at The Block at 5374 Darrow Road in Hudson from 9:30 am to 11 am the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. This is a Christ centered group that focuses on Biblical guidance in dealing with the complex family dynamics occurring when a loved one is caught up in substance abuse.

Get One-on-One Help to Address Your Child’s Substance Use

“Counselors at Partnership for Drug-Free Kids will listen to your story – the challenges, setbacks, obstacles and myriad of emotions that often go along with a child’s substance use. Given that there is no one-size-fits-all approach and each family is unique, they’ll propose a personalized course of action, offering the best tools and resources to help you help your child, yourself and your family. Get help by calling 1-855-378-4373.”

“During your call to the Partnership’s Helpline, and depending on individual circumstances, you may be referred to Parent Coaching. This program pairs those seeking additional guidance and support with a trained volunteer who has also traveled the path of dealing with their child’s substance use. Parent Coaching takes place on the phone – over the course of about five calls – during approximately a six-week period.  Trained Parent Coaches are versed in the techniques of Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), evidence-based approaches shown to set the stage for positive outcomes. Parent Coaches are there to listen, offer ideas and reaffirm that you aren’t alone in this struggle.  Parent Coaching relies on volunteers who generously lend their time and emotional energy, so availability can be limitedIf you’re interested in working with a Parent Coach, begin by calling the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids’ Helpline at 1-855-378-4373.
