Community Happenings

Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL) will hold family support meetings at the AZ Women’s Recovery Center, to help parents and family members deal with the issues surrounding a loved one struggling with addiction by providing education, fellowship, and most importantly, hope.

Meetings offer an evidence-based curriculum to help parents and family members learn healthy ways to deal with addiction challenges and provide support to exchange ideas and suggestions. The meetings are led by trained volunteer facilitators who have experienced the issues first-hand. The PAL meetings are open to parents, spouses, grandparents, siblings, and close friends, as long as they are 18 and older.

• Thursday evenings, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. AZ Women’s Recovery Center, 5827 N. 35th Ave., Phoenix. For details, contact the group facilitator listed below. Learn more at Contact: Dr. Khadijia  Email: [email protected]
