This group is to provide support for parents who have been struggling in a chronic cycle with their adult child’s substance use. The strength of the group is the shared experience from one parent to another.
One-on-one counselling sessions are offered at CASON for clients who are looking for help changing their use of substances or gaming/gambling.
