Parent Support Group at Sandstone Care D.C.
You’re not alone—connect with other parents who have a child struggling with drug and alcohol use. Parenting a teen or young adult who is struggling with substance use, and often, underlying mental health concerns, brings a whole new set of challenges to being a parent. For example, you may have moments you genuinely do not like your kid, but you feel like an awful parent for thinking such a thought. That’s what parent support groups are for. They give you a safe space to be honest and to connect with other parents going through similar situations. They also help provide a sense of direction and the tools to help you get there. Facilitated by a Sandstone Care Clinician One of our experienced clinicians will keep discussions on track, going deeper where needed and helping ensure each parent has a chance to be heard. Explore Your Thoughts You’ll get to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, experiences and perceptions as you navigate supporting your teen or young adult’s recovery. Discuss Your Needs You’ll also get to discuss self-care, support needs and difficulties. Parent support groups are free, and open to all parents to attend. No program affiliation is required.
