We know that when an individual suffers from addiction, the whole family suffers.
The best chance for an addicted individual to grow in recovery often means the family must get better as well. First Contact offers family support for relatives and loved ones of those suffering with substance abuse and addiction. Our goal is to help everyone on their own road to recovery. All programs and services are offered at no cost to the participants. For more information on the FIRST CONTACT Family Support Group call:

Families of addicted individuals often suffer in silence. But, it doesn’t need to be this way. Our weekly group meeting offers a safe place to gain valuable information and guidance for dealing with crisis situations, and compassionate on-going support needed to make tough choices often necessary for healing. Group members share similar experiences on how drug addiction has affected their own lives and cope with past and ongoing situations involving substance abuse related drama. This shared experience enables group members to reach out to comfort and encourage each other on the road to recovery.
