This group in Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) skills proven effective at decreasing a loved one’s harmful substance use, increasing their willingness to enter treatment and improving the group participant’s overall wellbeing. Skills and topics include: thriving through their recovery, goal setting and problem solving, positive communication, understanding their use patterns, behavioral change principles (when to step in and when to allow consequences), strategies for talking about treatment and sourcing appropriate treatment options, plus relapse and relationship progress. Practicing and implementing these skills creates more space for sober and recovery behaviors to flourish, while tracking towards long-term recovery goals. Goals for group members are personal to the individual and may include: encouraging your loved one to enter treatment, supporting their recovery, tolerating their ambivalence to change or moderation, feeling better yourself. Participants will be asked to participate in skills practice and share their struggles and solution suggestions based on personal experience - as much as they are comfortable to do so. Homework assignments will be given each week to further the skills practice beyond the group. Space will also be made for exploration of current themes and topics relevant to the group beyond the topics listed.
