With Parent Trust’s help and guidance I am learning to let go of the guilt and forgive myself so my kids can have their mom back.  My kids deserve a clean and sober mom and I deserve it too.

Families in Recovery


The Families In Recovery Program helps family members sustain recovery. Finding someone to talk to who really understands the challenges of recovery can be difficult. The Parent Trust for Washington Children Families in Recovery Program is designed just for that.

Our groups give recovering parents/caregivers a place to talk with other parents who understand and can help find solutions to the very real problems real parents face.

Program Goals
  • Connect parents with other recovering families.
  • Ease stress for parents and children.
  • Gain resources for raising responsible and successful children.
  • Increase family management skills.
  • Reduce hassles.
  • Build a toolkit of techniques that really work.
