Announcing NEW Education Groups for Family Members Coping with Loved One’s Addiction

Do you need guidance and
support dealing with a loved one’s addiction?

NJ Connect for Recovery can help.
Announcing NEW Education Group Series in Four Counties:

Atlantic, Middlesex, Ocean, Union
Learn about the how to navigate the treatment system. Understand addiction from a “loved one’s”
perspective! Get guidance and direction for your own healing and recovery.

The entire family is affected when addiction is present. People coping with substance use disorders need intervention and services. Loved ones who care for them may be scared or confused and often don’t know where to go for support and guidance. The Mental Health Association in New Jersey’s (MHANJ’s) NJ Connect for Recovery Call Line is offering free Support and Education Groups that can help. Each group is facilitated by a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor or a Family Peer Specialist who is familiar with the effects of addiction on the family as well as the New Jersey system of care. These sessions provide a safe, non- judgmental environment offering proven, helpful strategies, about addressing addiction and recovery. Participants may also benefit from guidance and group support.
