We recently hosted another successful parent coach training, this time in Dayton, Ohio, where 12 caring family members who have been impacted by a loved one’s substance use were trained to become parent coaches.
At the training sessions, both the trainers and the trainees share stories and gain knowledge from their first-hand experiences. Trainees encourage one another to keep the feelings of hope resonating through the weekend and beyond.
We hosted the session with help from Family of Addicts, a Dayton-based nonprofit that educates, empowers and embraces families, friends and individuals struggling with addiction by providing support and promoting recovery.
“I was that parent before it happened to my son. I had the wrong idea of what someone using substances looked like and what kind of parents they had… Now I know that idea is not true and I want to help others know this and help them see that there is hope.” – An anonymous parent coach
