CRAFT Community Reinforcement and Family Training
Recovery is for Families
Springs Recovery Connection’s CRAFT Support Program is for family members and friends concerned about someone close to them who lives with a substance use disorder. The Community Reinforcement and Family Training approach (CRAFT) is an evidence-based, compassionate, and effective approach for engaging a reluctant loved one into treatment. Family members learn strategies to take care of themselves while also increasing the motivation for positive change in their love ones.
Springs Recovery Connection provides a CRAFT Family Support Group as a program for family members and friends. A workbook is available to all CRAFT participants and gives specific instruction for the evidence-based CRAFT model following the “Get Your Loved One Sober” book by Dr. Robert Meyers.
4 Goals of CRAFT
• Reduce loved one’s harmful substance use
• Engage loved one into treatment
• Improve relationships in the family
• Improve functioning of concerned significant other
Why use CRAFT?
• Empowers you to influence change
• Trains you in behavior change skills
• Improves your quality of life
• Prepares you for your loved one’s treatment engagement
When an individual has a substance use disorder, the whole family is impacted.
Together we can overcome the stigma around substance use disorders and bring hope, encouragement and help to all families who are suffering and need support through a proven approach that can benefit both the substance user and the family members.
Springs Recovery Connection’s mission is to strengthen the recovery community through peer and family support, public education and advocacy. We believe there are many roads to recovery.
CRAFT Family Education Program
The Community Reinforcement and Family Training groups meets in person on Thursday evenings at Springs Recovery Connection from 5:30pm-7:00pm and on Wednesdays by Zoom from 12:00-1:00pm . CRAFT is a facilitator led group for family and friends of those suffering with substance use disorder
**In order to create continuity in this program series, and to promote the maximum benefit to mastering the principals and skills presented in CRAFT, we ask that attendees commit to the full 12 week sequence. The group will be closed at week 3 and anyone wanting to sign up after that time will be added to the waitlist for the next group.
Do you have a family member or friend in recovery or needing recovery?
So do we!
