ONLINE Family Support

Knowledge, Support and Connection for Family Members

Live out of town and can't attend the onsite family group?

Enroll in our 4-session ONLINE Family Support Program. You can participate from the comfort of your living room.

TWC offers a comprehensive, four session Family Support Program that educates and supports family members to better understand addictive behaviours. 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 to prevent the individual’s catastrophic decline. We answer these questions and more.

The ONLINE Family Support Program is $35 per session or all 4 sessions for $100 for TWC resident families. Online sessions take place every Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:30pm. Click HERE to learn more.

The sessions are a source of knowledge, support and connection for family members who endured, or have triumphed over addiction. Sharing similar experiences in a safe and comforting environment allows families to heal together. 

It is our belief that when a family is properly educated about the illness of addiction, they are better able to set clear and firm boundaries. Knowledge and insight helps family members to achieve sustained, long-term recovery for the ones they love.
