FAMILY SUPPORT

Together We Can views addiction as a disease that negatively impacts not only individuals, but also their families and loved ones.

Many people who are impacted by a loved one’s addiction feel utterly confused and helpless. They wonder where they went wrong or what they could have done differently. The family program offers answers to these questions and more.

Having the support of family is critical for recovery. When a family is properly educated about the illness of addiction, they are better able to set clear and firm boundaries.

TWC offers a comprehensive, four session family support program that educates and supports family members to better understand addiction. The sessions are a source of knowledge, support and connection for family members. Sharing similar experiences in a safe and comforting environment allows families to heal together.

The Family Support Program is FREE of charge to the family members of TWC clients and takes place every Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:30pm at TWC Centre, 2831 Kingsway, Vancouver. It is also presented as a one-day workshop one Saturday each month.
