Support for parent of young adult with substance abuse issues
I have been to many Alanon meetings and will likely continue to go from time to time. That is not what this post seeks. I am a single parent of a 21 year old who has had substance abuse issues since the age of 13. In every adolescent rehab, adolescent intensive outpatient treatment, and adult rehab my child has been to there were family groups, which included times for families to speak to each other without the qualifying person present. I always found that support and safe space in which to share invaluable. (The Alanon meetings I've gone to do not allow cross-talk.) I am hoping someone knows of groups that focus on living with addicts, and which offer opportunities for support and sharing. In the East Bay, west of the Caldecott Tunnel, would be ideal. Thank you!
