Recovery Resources During Social Isolation
While many of us are socially distancing at home according medical and governmental recommendations and our in person chapter meetings are being cancelled, we thought it might be helpful to provide a list of phone and on-line resources for parents (and other family members) of loved-ones struggling with substance use disorder.
December 21 — 7:00 p.m.

Navigating Addiction and Treatment:
A Guide for Families
This resource is for family members who are trying to navigate the complex world of addiction and help loved ones achieve recovery. The guide includes basic definitions, as well as in-depth information about substance use disorders, treatment options, communication strategies, and self-care tips. This guide was released in the summer of 2020. It was created by the Addiction Policy Forum staff in conjunction with an Expert Review Panel composed of prominent researchers and physicians in the addiction field. The guide was also crafted with support from the Family Support Advisory Committee made up of family members with lived experience.
