Community Reinforcement & Family Training (CRAFT)
Free, 8-week group teaches communication skills and strategies for family members with a loved one dealing with problematic substance use disorder. Participants will work on learning modules through the Allies in Recovery online training website and join other parents and caregivers for a weekly discussion group.
“I just finished the eighth week of the CRAFT course. It was very enlightening information with many new practices to try to learn so I can help my loved one move towards treatment. I will miss the other people in the group, especially our leader, John. He kept us focused, shared personal experiences and encouraged each one of us to share and apply it to the course module. I am glad I took the course.” – Roberta M., August 2020 Alumni
“I attended the 8 week CRAFT program on behalf of my sister-in-law who has a long history of alcohol abuse. The combination of videos, exercises and meetings is a great approach to introduce the “Allies in Recovery” concepts. The ability to discuss the topics and share our experiences was extremely helpful in learning to improve my communication skills with my loved one. John (Tallon) thoughtfully led the group through the sessions, sharing his first-hand experiences and engaging with participants to help us understand how we can apply the concepts to our unique situation. I would highly recommend this program to anyone struggling with an addict and I look forward to the day I can get my sister-in-law the help she so desperately needs.” – Kathy C., August 2020 Alumni
