Virtual Family Program for Native American Families


Family Program Virtual

The Virtual Family Program is intended to support the families and friends of a person struggling with a substance use disorder. Through a combination of presentations, Q&A, peer feedback and application of new concepts, the family program strives to create an interactive, supportive learning and processing environment, where families are able to gain insight and skills about:

  • Substance use disorder and its impacts on the family
  • Families' reactions to the substance use and behaviors in the past ("unhealthy helping")
  • Helpful boundary and communication skills
  • Sources of support for family recovery
  • Facilitators will apply culturally relevant tools and resources for Native American participants
