Gosnold assists family members and loved ones at all stages of addiction through education, intervention, and support. To speak directly to a Reaching Out Specialist, please call Michael Dias at 774-392-3721.
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.
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.
