"I was treated with respect and concern. I felt listened to and validated when I placed the call to this program. I feel more empowered and less of a failure as a mother because the person taking my call understood. That in turn helps me with parenting. I am very thankful for this program."

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

A son, daughter or other loved one’s substance use can be one of the most challenging issues that any family will ever face. Fear, uncertainty, and outdated (and unneeded) stigma can create difficulty for any family.

In collaboration with the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, the Grayken Center for Addiction at Boston Medical Center is proud to offer this resource to Massachusetts families.

Families concerned about their child’s substance use come in all shapes in sizes: You may be the grandparent of a young teen who isn’t using substances, but whose friends are. You may be the mom of a son who is struggling with active opioid use. You may be the dad of a daughter in recovery. Whatever substance use related challenges your family may be facing, you can start finding help and support here.
