Description

Join us on Friday, December 1st from 1-4pm for CRAFT Training at Marshall University. Beyond Addiction Family Support Groups are based on the nationally recognized CRAFT training. This training will focus on the necessary skills to establish and help with one of these support groups.

WV Beyond Addiction Family Support Groups are based on the book “Beyond Addiction: How Kindness and Science can Help People Change” by Jeff Foote and Carrie Wilkens. This book describes the CRAFT approach to helping people with addictions make significant changes in their lives. The CRAFT approach has a higher than average success rate in helping group members’ loved ones make different choices about their behaviors in relationship to alcohol and drugs.

CRAFT groups have three goals:

  1. When a loved one is abusing substances and refusing to get help, CRAFT helps families move their loved one toward treatment.

  2. CRAFT helps reduce the loved one’s alcohol and drug use, whether or not the loved one has engaged in treatment yet.

  3. CRAFT helps improve the lives of the concerned family and friends.
