Feeling Hopeless
Because of an Alcoholic or Addict
in Your Life?

Learn how to find calm and make sense of your situation.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS PROGRAM

You may be feeling hopeless and alone. Confused and don’t know what is real anymore. Have tried everything you can think of and nothing is working.

Maybe you sometimes feel like you are going crazy.

You are tired of lies, broken promises and covering up for them.

Addiction impacts far more people than just the addict. Family, Friends and even Co-workers can find themselves drawn into the disease.

Family and friends spend countless hours worrying about loved ones who are addicts and alcoholics, trying to control their behaviors, track their whereabouts or talking with other employees for support.

Co-workers can find themselves working extra hours and lying for the addict or alcoholic to cover for their behaviors, absences or lack of productivity.

Addicted loved ones can disrupt the workplace with phone calls, text messages, emails and sometimes unannounced visits.

This four-week program is designed to help people who have addicts and alcoholics in their lives, deal with the situation in a healthy manner which minimizes disruption in all areas of their lives including the workplace.

Participants learn how to focus on themselves, minimizing the chaos and how to build a support network.

This program is designed for Family and Friends of Alcoholics or Addicts (including sex addicts) and can be beneficial for co-workers who find themselves being drawn into the chaos of addiction
