Nurturing Parenting for Families in Recovery

Recovery and reunification are possible.

If you are a parent or caregiver working on your recovery and want to learn more about the effects of substance use on your family, parenting style, and your relationship with your child join us for this FREE 17-week program.

Nurturing Parenting For Families in Recovery is a free class hosted by Crisis & Counseling Centers’ Parent’s Case Management program in partnership with Kennebec Valley Community Action Program. 

What to expect. 

In this course parents and caretakers will learn about stress management, guiding behaviors, boundary skills and gain a deeper understanding of the feelings of grief, loss, and guilt that may come with recovery from a substance use disorder. By doing exercises centered on self-care, finding hope, and key parenting skills participants will rebuild trust with their children. A panel of community providers will also be offered as well as resources that can aid participants in their recovery and parenting journeys.

Who are classes for?

This class is ideal for parents, caregivers, expectant parents, and parents that are working on reunification who are in recovery from a substance use disorder or who are actively using and live in Kennebec or Somerset County. The class is open to those who are dealing with all types of substance use disorders. The class is also open to family members who are raising children that have been affected by substance use disorders. While parents/caregivers with children of any age are welcome, the class is designed for those who are actively parenting.
