Families are often left out of treatment and are considered, at best, an afterthought in the recovery process. In this webinar, participants will explore the impact of substance use disorder on the family through lived experience, addressing what families need, and how best to deliver the information.
Maureen Cavanagh, MPA, MEd, LADC I, is a national public speaker on the parent perspective of addiction and the author of If You Love Me: A Mother’s Journey Through Her Daughter’s Addiction and Recovery, published by Henry Holt/Macmillan in 2018 and favorably reviewed by the New York Times. Cavanagh is the creator of the family-focused addiction support training (FAST©) program, which provides a curriculum-driven family support meeting and consults to various healthcare organizations, substance use disorder treatment programs, and corporations on the creation and improvement of family wellness programs for those supporting a person with a substance use disorder. She is the Director of Family Support Services at New England Medical Group in Hingham, Massachusetts and the President of Magnolia Recovery and Consulting Services and Magnolia New Beginnings.
