Recovery Resources For Family Members/Parents

Today’s world is embracing more marijuana use while families like ours pay a heavy price. It’s important families seek support. We invite you to the Every Brain Matters Support Groups. You are not alone.

We acknowledge that the general public and many support groups don’t understand the true and devastating impacts of marijuana.  So many times it’s hard for us to share honestly how today’s more potent, more dangerous marijuana has affected our lives and families as we are not taken seriously in the addiction community.  So we respectfully invite you to an online group, Every Brain Matters Support/Recovery Group, a community of supporters who understand and encourage healing and growth in response to marijuana use and addiction.
