An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
Weekly virtual support meetings for family members who have a loved one struggling with addiction or in any stage of recovery.
As part of our response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Ashley has anticipated the social limitations which many Ashley families are facing. We know that family connection and engagement can be essential to the recovery of you and your loved one. It is also important that you have the support you need during these difficult times. In that spirit, we are offering Virtual Parent & Family Connection meetings every Wednesday from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. These meetings will be facilitated by a member of Ashley’s staff. Register below for the Zoom meeting information. About the meetings: • Last names do not have to be used and are not required • Mute your audio; you can listen and are not required to share, please virtually raise your hand when you would like to share (participant list) • Our only request of you is that you’re respectful of all the other participants We want to consider all the ways in which we can support you and your family member in your ongoing recovery. If you need us, we’re here for you! Contact Louis Marcell, Alumni Coordinator LMarcell@ashleytreatment.org with any questions.

Are you interested in serving as a Parent and Family Connection facilitator? As we seek ways to expand PFC and offer more peer-led support services, we will rely on volunteers to aid in those efforts. Volunteers will receive training and guidance from our Family Services staff as these roles take shape.
