Families in Recovery Group
Residents in Recovery Families in Recovery Program is offering a 17-week program for Mothers in
Substance Abuse Treatment & Recovery.
The Nurturing Program for Families in Substance Abuse Treatment & Recovery is built on the principles of relational development. We believe that success and satisfaction of parents and children improve as certain essential factors become more vital and pervasive within the relationship.
These factors are:
Mutuality: Characterized by a dynamic, interactive sensitivity and responsiveness
Authenticity: Freedom and ability to live within the relationship at a high level of exposure and vulnerability
Empathy: A process by which the disclosure and sharing of oneself leads to heightened sense of self, and of understanding another; self-awareness and self-acceptance enhance awareness and acceptance of others.
Parents will explore their childhood experiences, their fears, and their strengths, as well as the effects of substance abuse on themselves and their families and strengthen their recovery. They will develop self-awareness and build nurturing skills using a variety of techniques and activities that accommodate different learning styles. Each woman will explore their own process of development as adults in recovery and examine the parallels and differences in the the development of their children.
Who Should Participate?
Adult women with children age 0 to 16 years, who are in treatment and/or recovery for substance abuse problems and are in parenting relationships with their children. Participants need not to have custody of their children to benefit from this program.
