Sober Parenting Journey
​Tuesdays, beginning May 1
5:00-7:00 p.m.
​51 Cole Parkway, Scituate Harbor
Registration required, limited to 8 participants. 

In collaboration with Wellspring Multi-Service Center, South Shore Peer Recovery is pleased to present Sober Parenting Journey.  This small group of parents and caregivers (limited to 8 participants) will meet for 2 hours a week for 14 weeks. The program includes activities, discussions, a family-style meal each session and complimentary childcare.  Addiction is complicated and difficult to overcome. Parents and caregivers in recovery face the additional challenge of building strong, positive relationships with their children while maintaining their sobriety, which can be both rewarding and daunting. Sober Parenting Journey provides a valuable source of fellowship and support and enhances awareness of potential triggers that may escalate relapse. In a safe and caring setting, participants will explore past and present patterns of emotional regulation, compulsive thinking, and addictive behaviors that influence choices. With hard work and honesty, participants will create a new path that strengthens sobriety, accountability, and positive actions while facing the daily challenges of recovery.
