What they offer.


The C.A.R.E.S. Hope & Support Groups are safe, confidential venues for parents and other concerned individuals to discuss a loved one’s suspected or confirmed use of mind-altering substances. Credentialed addiction professionals teach and guide participants using evidence-based peer-to-peer support. Group meetings provide education, encouragement, and empowerment.

C.A.R.E.S. assists individuals and families with evaluating and accessing quality, solution-based treatment & recovery resources: counseling, detoxification, residential rehabilitation, outpatient treatment, sober living, and aftercare services. Staff can be reached day or night by calling: 855-406-0246.

What they promote.


Understanding. Resilience. Courage. Strength.

By connecting affected families with one another, through skilled facilitation and mentorship, C.A.R.E.S. group participants learn strategies that assist them in coping with the many negative consequences often associated with substance abuse and addiction. Our attendees find relief from the debilitating feelings of stress, guilt, shame, anger, fear, anxiety, loss, grief and social isolation. Members find solace knowing that they are not alone in their struggles. Regular group attendance promotes healing and hope.

When they meet.


All C.A.R.E.S. Hope & Support drop-in groups meet weekly from 7-9 PM. Meetings are free-of-charge and are attended by individuals whose loved ones, of any age, are using or abusing substances. Every group session follows the same format, making it comfortable for members to attend multiple groups if they wish. Attendees are welcome to enter whenever they can during the group session, and leave when they must. Although weekly attendance is encouraged, participants are free to attend as often as their schedules allow. To maintain the integrity of the group, members agree to a collective pledge of confidentiality.

WE CAN'T SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS BY USING THE SAME KIND OF THINKING WE USED WHEN WE CREATED THEM.
