Addict's Family & Friends

Our purpose is to empower family members and friends who strive for the well-being of an addicted person; and to educate and equip each advocate with the knowledge and tools necessary to care for the addicted person, to care for oneself, and to strive for change on a local level.

Family Life Counseling and Psychiatric Services is determined to, not only acknowledge concerns within the community, but provide action steps that should be reflected in a loving and supportive manner toward the addicted person. One of the most unique arguments regarding addiction is that it can be overcome with human connection. It is our goal to reestablish this connection with families, friends, and within our community.

The “Addict’s Family & Friends” is welcome to family members, friends, neighbors, first responders, service providers, concerned citizens, and advocates.  Each month we will highlight successful programs, useful advice, personal testimonies, educational opportunities, and equip you with effective action steps to get your loved one in recovery.
