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 no cost to attend.
