How to Cope: Help for Families Impacted by Addiction

How to Cope: Help for Families Impacted by Addiction

The following was sent in by the Midwestern Connecticut Council of Alcoholism

One  out of every four children under the age of 12 live in a home that is affected by addiction.

How To Cope is an intensive, seven session program to empower family members impacted by a loved one’s addiction. The program was designed to provide education, awareness and support while shedding light on the disease of addiction.

How To Cope teaches the family how the disease of addiction has influenced their lives and how the family can maintain a healthy lifestyle. The groups meet two nights a week for two hours, with a new series beginning each month.

Seven sessions to better understanding, strength and hope…

Session 1 – The Disease of Addiction

Session 2 – How Enabling Behavior Supports Addiction

Session 3 – How Addiction Affects the Family

Session 4 – How Addiction Affects You

Session 5 – You have Choices

Session 6 – You Can Make Decisions

Session 7 – You Really Can Cope

We also offer two additional programs for children and teens that offer emotional, social and physical alternatives to the fear and anxiety of living in a home interrupted by drug and alcohol addiction.

Please contact Danielle Sileo, LMFT, Director of Family Services at MCCA, at (203) 438-8680 or to register or for more information.

Program fee is $295 per person. Financial assistance available if needed.

MCCA (Midwestern Connecticut Council of Alcoholism) is the primary provider of substance abuse prevention, evaluation and treatment services in the greater Danbury area. How to Cope was developed by First Call and is recognized by the National Association of State Alcohol/Drug Abuse Directors.
