Support Groups for Parents of Addicts and Substance Users
For guardians of parents of addicts, substance users, or teens engaging in other self-defeating behaviors, little can be said to ease the anxiety parents feel regarding their child. However, you don’t have to go through this alone – FullCircle® offers weekly parent support group meetings specifically aimed at addressing the challenges of supporting a loved one through the early substance abuse/addiction recovery process.
If you’re in this difficult position, we encourage you to watch the videos below or view our testimonials page to see if the stories there may offer you or your family members some hope.

Parent-led support group meetings
For parents whose children attend the FullCircle support group, we offer weekly support groups for families of addicts. These meetings serve as a way for parents to relate with one another, hear experience from other parents, and learn ways to support their family members struggling with substance use disorders.
The Parent Group meetings are led by other parents who have been through similar issues with their young person and have gained tools to help them cope and to heal their strained family relationships.
These meetings offer support for the parent who is searching for solutions for their child and provide an avenue to gain tools to respond to their child’s needs. We find that in dealing with the problems that arise from a child abusing drugs and alcohol, nothing is more useful than sharing our common experiences and the experiences of other parents.
The solutions we have found have healed many families and helped many parents find peace in this difficult situation. Most of all, every parent whose child struggles with addiction or mental illness wants to help them stop hurting. We believe we have found a solution to the roller coaster ride of substance abuse and other self-destructive behaviors.
Individual appointments available
FullCircle staff members are also available for appointments to assist families in identifying and resolving problems. Many times, the young people we work with are also in addiction treatment programs, or they are struggling with other mental health issues. FullCircle staff members work to help guide parents as they navigate the early recovery process with their teen or young adult.
