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 DC Parent & Family Connection meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
Facilitator: Jennifer Dorsey, NCC, LPC, CAC-I
Jen has had the pleasure of facilitating the DC Parent Connection group since it started in 2014. She is the Regional Clinical Director for the Kolmac Outpatient Recovery Centers and has been working in addiction treatment since 1999. As someone who started recovery at a young age and is herself a mom, Jen has a passion for providing support to parents who are on their own journeys of recovery from the impact addiction has had in their lives.
