One of the organizations that is working diligently to change the field of addictions is Shatterproof.
Shatterproof is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation addiction causes families.Shatterproof has recently launched a new Family Program. Here is the summary they have published about this program for families who have been impacted by addiction.
“You can help families devastated by addiction. The Shatterproof Family Program provides education and support in a safe and caring setting where families who are suffering can share experiences, build new relationships, and learn more about addiction, treatment, and recovery.
Bring the Shatterproof Family Program to your community by becoming a facilitator. Shatterproof Facilitator Training will prepare you to lead the program and help families impacted by substance use disorder.”
Further they will be sponsoring training sessions for those who wish to become a Facilitator of this program. I firmly believe that bringing information and support to families within communities is a great idea. It will enhance, enrich and strengthen families who have experienced the devastation of addiction. The training dates for potential facilitators are as follows:
May 29-30 | Washington DC/Capital Area
July 18-19 | Denver, CO
September 13-14 | Miami, FL
November 2-8 | New York City, NY

Shatterproof is a non-profit that is growing rapidly and is very committed to helping families and systems that have been involved in the addiction crisis so prominent in our country today. I am grateful for the work they have done to become agents of change in the field of addictions.
