Parent Partnership Calendar of Meetings
Join with other parents, families and caregivers in a friendly and caring atmosphere to…
• find support if you aren’t sure if your loved one’s drinking or drug use is typical experimentation, or something you may need to address;
• connect with others whose loved ones have either struggled with substance use or addiction, or are currently in recovery;
• become informed, empowered and find resources and outside help when needed; or
• continue the “Conversation” after attending Be a Part of the Conversation events.

What are people saying about Parent Partnership meetings?
Anonymous feedback from Parent Partnership members.
“This has been our sanity. The parents in these groups are understanding and full of experience. We learned more helpful advise from this group than anywhere else.”
“Great feeling of comfort with others who are in the same type of situations with us.”
“Wonderful people supporting each other as we navigate this difficult and often isolating road. Love how it is a judgment-free zone.”
“I wish I had known about this group before we sent our son to a treatment facility. I had attended Alanon, but this meeting is a much better fit for me. How can we spread the word?”
“The group is wonderful with caring individuals who are patient and supportive with one another.”
“Great group experience. Everyone is committed to finding a better way to deal with our child’s health. Nice to feel the support of total strangers.”
“It’s very comforting that you are not alone, and hearing other experiences gives you hope.”
“I felt welcome when I entered the door.”
“Every meeting I walk away with at least one tidbit to help me act or react differently/in a more helpful manner to myself or the addict, and I also feel better. I feel less alone and more capable of handling what the next week has in store for our family.”
“People are met where they are emotionally. People clearly feel safe in sharing their feelings.”
“I like connecting with others who are in the same situation and hearing how they are handling things.”
“Our group leader is totally giving and caring, and listens and offers individual support to all who ask for help.”
