Mission Statement

To promote public understanding of alcoholism and drug addiction as treatable and preventable diseases.

Description

FLW is a FREE program dedicated to strengthen the bonds of family and communication, encourage positive relationships with peers and family members, and prevent the onset of substance abuse in our youth. FLW, better known as the Strengthening Families Program, is a Model Program though the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Our highly trained staff is hoping to meet the needs of our residents with this opportunity. Each session includes dinner, provided by NCADD, to engage our families in a relaxed setting and encourage positive communication. After dinner, adults and youth are separated. Youth will gain tools in coping with peer pressure and stress, as well as learn to engage their peers and facilitators in a supportive environment. Adults will collect skills to set limits with their young people, skills to support positive behavior in children, and will develop new and exciting connection to other community resources and people. The last hour of Program is dedicated to Family Session. We will play games, introduce family meeting styles, and create arts and crafts projects. It's an exciting time, and one we want to share with as many people as possible
