Help Families Struggling With Addiction

Lancaster County Adult Drug Court is recruiting volunteers for the Celebrating Families™ curriculum to help families struggling with addiction.

Many Adult Drug Court participants with children need assistance in learning new parenting and relationship skills. Likewise, the children need guidance in understanding the change in family dynamics as their parent or caregiver moves through the recovery process.

The successful, evidence-based 16-week curriculum engages every family member, infants through adults. Families share a meal and discuss different topics (by age group), such as healthy living, nutrition, and communication. The program and materials were developed by the National Association of Children of Alcoholics specifically for children of alcoholics and addicts.

The program runs August 14 – December 11 with classes on Mondays, 5:15 – 7:30 p.m. at First Plymouth Church, 2000 D Street.
