Support group offered for caregivers

GREENFIELD — The Salasin Project and The RECOVER Project are co-sponsoring a virtual education/support group for caregivers who have domestic violence, and/or substance use histories. The group has open enrollment, so there is no deadline by which to sign up.

The Nurturing Program for Families in Substance Related Treatment and Recovery is a 16-week, evidence-based group designed to offer adult caregivers educational information about human growth and development. This program explores the impact of substance misuse and domestic violence on children and families. The topics from week to week are designed to strengthen participants’ self-esteem and to encourage strength-based models for guiding behaviors in children.
