CRAFT, Family Skills Group – 6:30-8pm, Mondays starting March 4th, at the Center, 51 Cole Parkway, Scituate Harbor. This 8-week group teaches communication skills and strategies for family members with a Loved One dealing with problematic substance use. CRAFT is a program with impressive results. In studies, CRAFT has been proven to increase Loved Ones’ engagement in treatment, increase their time spent in treatment, and reduce their use. Importantly, the CRAFT participant significantly reduces their own depression, anxiety, and worry. Participants will work on learning modules through the Allies in Recovery online training website. Then, join other parents and caregivers for a weekly discussion group at the Center, facilitated by John Kimmett.
