Aug 22-29 is PAL Awareness Week. “Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL) is a national non-profit that provides hope through education and support to parents of adults dealing with substance use disorder. Parents of adult addicts are often collateral damage in the war on drugs, sacrificing their health, their finances and their relationships in an effort to “save” their addicted loved one. PAL provides help on two fronts:
- The evidence-based education parents need to encourage their loved one’s recovery without enabling their addiction.
- The peer-to-peer support they want to face the challenges of the addiction in a group that understands and does not judge.
Weekly meetings are held at no charge across the country.”
