The Nurturing Program for Families in Substance Abuse Treatment and Recovery, is a 16 week, evidence-based course designed to offer adult caregivers educational information about human growth and development. This nationally recognized program explores the impact of substance abuse and domestic violence on children and families. With each stage of development, individuals internalize personal messages that foster more comfort and confidence within ourselves.
We typically get what we need for emotional health from our caregivers, if we do not get our needs met during childhood we do have the opportunity to become aware of and address those needs as adults. The topics from week to week are designed to strengthen the positive self-esteem of participants and encourage strength-based models for guiding behaviors in children.
We offer Child Enrichment for this group. Caregivers may attend with children and we offer activities and playtime in our playroom while parents convene in the next room for the group. This group requires registration. Please contact (413) 774-4307 Extension 3 to sign up.
