In 2017, Bucks County residents were invited to attend the Parent and Family Support Group on Addiction at The Presbyterian Church of Deep Run, hosting David S.
One of the guest speakers,David S., shared his own personal journey and struggle with heroin addiction. David is in recovery and is also a parent of a recovering addict. Do you have a loved one addicted to drugs or alcohol? You are not alone in understanding the epidemic in our community. David shared when he made the decision to get help and found that his recovery was possible. David was assisted by facilitators in the question and answer portion of the program.
Establishing a life of recovery is a vital link to connecting with others who have shared similar experiences. Parents and family can attend a group meeting that provides them with a confidential, safe place to find support, education, encouragement and hope. Stories are shared, about both recovery and relapse and may provide participants with new insight. Each meeting is different as speakers are invited to attend periodically. After attending a few meetings you make a decision if the group meets your needs. Helping others does help yourself through new relationships and hope for recovery.
