    Recovery and Wellness Family Skills Support MeetingsOur wellness recovery program is a completely confidential and safe haven for all in need of support, encouragement, education and fellowship as we gather to share and heal together. Dealing with the disease of addiction is frequently a traumatic experience for all the members of a family. Thus, we are beginning to see recovery as a process of readjusting our attitudes, feelings, perceptions, and beliefs about ourselves, others, and life in general. Addiction is a FAMILY disease and it needs to be treated as such, therefore FAMILY RECOVERY is fundamental but takes someone to break the cycle; it takes YOU! Be the example you wish to see. Each session will cover a variety of approaches, including group discussions/sharing, videos, readings, spiritual growth, guest speakers, professional counselors, etc.YorkGuiding Hearts With HopeGuiding Hearts With Hope
