Individuals worried about a loved one’s substance use can learn how to help them at a new class focusing on the Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training (CRAFT) model.
The first class will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library, 206 Broadway St. It will continue for six consecutive Thursdays, through Oct. 19.
Participants will learn new techniques and solutions to help move their loved one toward recovery, build a healthier relationship and improve their personal quality of life. The class is structured around the book “Getting Your Loved One Sober” and will be facilitated by local community members who were trained by the author, Dr. Robert J. Meyers.
The class consists of six sessions, held once a week, with a maximum of 10 participants.
Participants are encouraged to attend all six sessions, but it is not a requirement. There is no charge to attend.
Participants are encouraged to purchase the book “Getting Your Loved One Sober,” or they can borrow a book during the class.
Participants can register by calling the Hancock County ADAMHS Board at 419-424-1985.
