Congratulations! We are so proud of the participants who successfully completed our intensive 17-week program entitled, “How to Nurture Yourself and Others.” It is a program produced by the Nurturing Parenting Curriculum designed to strengthen and support individuals in substance abuse recovery. Graduates are pictured with Macon Wrenn, our Parent Educator (farthest left in picture).

If you would like to join the next session which begins December 6th, see details here.

“How to Nurture Yourself and Others” is built on the principles of relational development. Participants explore their childhood experiences, their fears, and their strengths. They explore the effects of substance abuse on themselves and their families, and strengthen their recovery. Throughout the 17 weeks, participants develop self-awareness and build nurturing skills using a variety of techniques and activities that accommodate different learning styles.

Who can benefit from this course?
Partners of parenting adults in treatment and recovery, extended family members who may be parenting children of substance abusing adults, and adults in treatment and/or recovery for substance abuse problems and who are in parenting relationships with children. Participants need not have children in order to benefit from this program.
