Allies in Recovery CRAFT 4-Day Training: August 10, 11, 18, 19 image

This Four-Day, 20-hour Training for CRAFT Facilitators is geared primarily to those interested in facilitating CRAFT support groups, mainly professionals and paraprofessionals (peer coaches who work with families, and those wanting to facilitate educational groups). It's also appropriate for family members whose loved one struggles with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), if you have a basic knowledge of CRAFT (for example from watching the self-guided videos). All participants will come away with a deeper understanding of the family perspective and more meaningful ways to use CRAFT, the only evidence-based method designed for families affected by SUD.

Upon completion of this 20-hour training, attendees get 6 months of free access to the Allies in Recovery ( online platform. CRAFT Support Group facilitators will receive regular supervision follow-up from Allies staff. Workbook included.
