Climbers Family Support Group

Climbers with Joe Parker

A professional counselor leads this weekly online support group for families affected by a loved one’s marijuana use. Participants learn recovery tools that empower them to take the next step while navigating through marijuana addiction, psychosis, hyperemesis, self-harm, or other destructive behaviors. Whether families decide to take small steps or hike the mountain, each step counts and can positively impact their families’ relationships and health.

In the world of recovery, families learn the 3 C’s about the disease of addiction.

We didn’t cause it.

We can’t control it.

And we can’t cure it.

In the Every Brain Matters Climbers meeting, we talk about a 4th C. How do we contribute to it positively or negatively? It’s difficult for families to know what that means, so by discussing these situations, we gain clarity on the best response for our families.

We encourage each family member to work on their own recovery program. We allow cross-talking to share ideas, experiences, strength, and hope. Every family makes their own decisions and heals at their own pace. We respect the feelings and privacy of those attending our meetings.

We ask for a donation to compensate for the professional expertise and time we provide, but this is not a requirement to attend. The suggested donation is $20.00 per person or $35.00 per family. Join us every Wednesday at 7 pm central time zone.

Every Brain Matters Monthly Speakers Meeting -Doug Dolan

In this new era of industrialized THC, families need support and hope. Please join us on the first Friday of every month for messages of healing from the impacts of marijuana and the expanding drug crisis.  There will be a Q&A at the end of each meeting. This meeting may be recorded at the presenter’s discretion.

This month, we feature Doug Dolan.

Doug Dolan is co-owner and COO at Recovery in the Pines, a long-term, life transformational, substance abuse and mental health facility. He sits on various committees focused on suicide prevention, brain injuries as they relate to mental health and addiction, drug overdose fatalities, and families in crisis.

Doug conducts speaking engagements on substance abuse, mental health, trauma, and life skills to help educate schools, organizations, institutions, incarcerated populations, and conferences.

Doug personally struggled with addiction and mental health issues. He has been sober since April 19, 1997, lost a younger brother to an opioid overdose, and lost his best friend of 30 years to suicide, who was self-medicating with marijuana.

Involuntary Commitment to Treatment Can Help your Loved Ones Recover from Cannabis-Induced Psychosis

For at least the last 5 years, we have seen a significant increase in the number of young people experiencing psychotic-like features after using cannabis in its various forms. Psychosis makes it difficult for parents to rationalize with their young adult children about their need for treatment. That’s where the court system can help.

Joe Considine has practiced law in South Florida since 1983. His practice focuses on addiction-related law, including the Marchman Act and family law. He works extensively with families whose loved ones have substance abuse and mental health problems and has handled hundreds of Marchman Act cases in various circuits in Florida. Joe is committed to educating mental health professionals, the legal community, and the public about the efficacy of the Marchman Act. He has presented to conferences of mental health professionals, treatment centers, and civic organizations. He has also written many articles about the Marchman Act, which are easily accessible at JoeConsidineLaw.com.

In addition to leading a well-regarded law practice, Joe has served on the Board of Directors of The Fern House in West Palm Beach, a residential rehabilitation facility for indigent men with substance use disorders, for more than 25 years. He also enjoys assisting and participating with the Max Planck Institute for Neuroscience as a member of its Brain Trust. A native of Palm Beach County, Joe currently lives in West Palm Beach, has three adult children, and loves painting, mountain biking, and tending to his butterfly garden.
