FAVOR Family Group Meeting Spartanburg
FAVOR Family Group, Empowering Families
WHEN: Monday at 6 PM EST
WHERE: GoForth Recovery Program, 282 South Church Street, Spartanburg 29306
WHAT: Addiction affects the whole family. Often the best chance for an addicted person to get better is for his or her family to get better. This weekly group meeting provides both the information and guidance that family members need to deal with the immediate crises of addiction, but also the on-going support they need to make the necessary and often painful choices that family recovery requires. Group members reach out in empathy to newcomers, who are facing the fresh, private grief of addiction, and accompany them on their healing journey to recovery.

Some believe that people with substance use disorders are only hurting themselves. They just have to figure it out on their own. Their families should just “detach” and not “enable” them to continue drinking or drug use.
This could not be further from the truth – in fact, for each person struggling with a substance use disorder, at least 4-5 family members, friends and associates are directly impacted in measurable ways, often through stress and other health problems.
At FAVOR, we know that substance use disorder is a family disease and that families are a critical part of the recovery solution. We offer families a compassionate and powerful alternative to the ineffective “tough love” approach through Recovery Coaching, family support programs, and family educational meetings. All programs are offered at no cost to the participants.
