 Family Awareness Program For Individuals and Families Who Suffer From the Impact of Addiction

Pre-registration is appreciated but not required through the Nantucket Community School.

25% of the USA population is part of a family that is affected by someone with an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. 90% of those active with addiction live with a family or a significant other. In families with active addiction you will see a significant amount of morbidity (illness) and mortality (death) for the members in the family.

Many believe that those who suffer from addiction should be able to “stop” using drugs and/or alcohol and should be able to “stay stopped”. As a result, families become extremely frustrated, bewildered, angry, frightened when their loved one continues to use drugs and alcohol despite warnings, threats, consequences and even treatment for the addiction.

Families play a large role in assisting the individual’s addiction to continue by enabling the loved one, although they do not realize they are doing this. Family education and treatment as part of the addiction treatment has shown to improve outcomes both for the one with addiction as well as the family.


A two-day program designed to help those who suffer from or love someone who suffers from addiction.

DAY ONE - Friday, Sept. 28th, 2018, 5:00pm - 8:00pm (snacks will be provided)

DAY TWO - Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018, 10:00am - 2:30pm (a light lunch will be served)
