Children and Teens

These are the years to develop and strengthen the resilience of children and teenagers. Our programs provide young people with the tools they need to solve problems and cope with life’s challenges as well as help strengthen family relationships.

Healthy Visions (Supportive Education for Children of Addicted Parents)

This program is supportive education for children who have parents/guardians who are struggling with or are in recovery from the disease of addiction. The interactive activities and discussions are designed to help our youth participate in healing groups and develop skills they need to gain strength from their own resiliency. Youth will be able to explore their feelings, learn they are not alone, and recognize the stressful things that might happen in their families is not their fault.

Ages: Elementary School, Middle School, or High School

Program Length: 6 sessions
