Parent & Family Connection is a safe and professionally-facilitated resource for parents, guardians, and other family members that have a child (or children) or other loved one, in recovery or in active addiction. It’s a place to share support, wisdom, and perspective to help cope with the collateral effects of addiction. It is open to everyone and free of charge.
The Columbia Parent & Family Connection meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
