Do you have a family member or loved one struggling with addiction? Do you sometimes feel frustrated, angry, sad, depressed, powerless, not knowing which way to turn?
Road2RecoveryCNY’s RESOURCE NIGHT is a free meeting that offers information and support for those who love someone with an addiction. Meetings are held quarterly and are led by parents whose own kids have struggled.
“Addiction not only traumatizes individuals, but their families as well. Often feeling guilt, anger, anxiety, and despair, family members struggle to understand their loved one and wonder what they can do to help. Our Resource Night is designed to help family members find answers, community resources, and help heal family members from the trauma of living with or loving someone with an addiction.” – Road2RecoveryCNY Co-founder Darlene Endy
The program is free for all family members of people struggling with addiction. Attendees learn from experienced family members who have dealt with the same issues themselves. Topics include how to cope with someone in active addiction or early recovery, and how family members can start caring for themselves.

“When someone you love is struggling with Substance Use Disorder, you feel overwhelmed and alone. What do you do, where do you turn, how do you help, how do you get your own life back? Road2RecoveryCNY’s Resource Night helped me connect with people in the same situation, offered tips and advice, and gave me coping tools I could use. Extremely useful.”
“The R2RCNY Resource Night helped us to release our guilt from our son’s addiction. It also helped us to connect with other families who were going through the same thing, which helped us see we were not alone. It helped because we could talk to other people who understood exactly what we were going through.”
“The R2RCNY Resource Night made us aware that we were not alone in the wide range of challenges we were facing in dealing with a loved one experiencing addiction. The information presented, support, and resources available were extremely beneficial to addressing recovery for the entire family. The discussions on co-dependency and the enabling behaviors of family members in dealing with a loved one experiencing addiction were extremely informative. They started us on a path to initiate changes in our family’s approach and behaviors in dealing with a loved one experiencing addiction.”

“The R2RCNY Resource Night was a wonderful experience. Looking back, I think it was pivotal in our journey to better understand addiction and allowed us to find fellowship with others who faced similar challenges. I will always remain grateful to R2RCNY for their continued assistance to those struggling with addiction, and for also supporting their families.”
