We Strive To Reach Out

Family Support and Education Groups:

The Gosnold Reaching Out program is a resource for family members and loved ones affected by addiction.   It assists the family at all stages of addiction through education, intervention, and support.

Untreated chronic addiction causes severe stress within the family unit that can lead to significant health problems such as high blood pressure, weight loss or gain, anxiety, and insomnia.  Feelings of anger, guilt, shame, and fear are all facets of addiction that impact the family unit.

An educated and supportive family has a positive impact on treatment outcomes.  Family members receive support and guidance to manage the challenges of addiction and recovery. Gosnold provides weekly family education and support groups for families seeking answers and resources. The family education sessions and support groups are facilitated by Gosnold’s certified clinicians and are at no cost to attend.

Due To Covid-19 Restrictions, Some Family Support Groups Are Currently Virtual-Only.

Please contact Michael Dias at 774-392-3721 or email for more information.

Additional Resources:

Gosnold’s Director of Community Outreach, Kevin Rosario, speaks to the parents of the Nantucket New School about substance use disorder and the impact on the adolescent brain. Kevin spoke with the 6, 7 & 8th graders on earlier in the day and then met with their parents to give the same presentation in the evening, this is done to facilitate productive discussions around the topic in the household.

"I can’t say enough about the family education session. I’ve been involved in recovery for many years but learned so much last week. Thank you to all who work tirelessly to help fight this disease that takes so many." -Cheryl F.
