A family member's addiction can affect everyone, including children in the home. Experienced care will help your child to cope, manage grief, and build resiliency.
Children often feel the impact of a family member’s addiction or other challenging family circumstances. Sometimes it can be easy to recognize the signs such as isolation, regression, sleep issues, avoidance, or loss of appetite. But, many times the signs don’t show up right away, but later in life. A trained counselor can help your child and your family share emotions and avoid negative consequences down the road.
It is easy to access counseling services via telehealth. All services are free. Call today to schedule confidential counseling sessions that can help your child cope and build resiliency.
