Join us from the comfort of your own home via Zoom video / call conference.

Learn skills to shift harmful substance use habits in someone we love.

Join us for a gathering of likeminded peers, also loving someone through addiction. We’ll learn from one another as well as from our group guide Erica, who will teach us Positive Communication skills to take into our relationships.

Erica is not only a licensed mental health counselor with years of experience working in top and pioneering clinics she also has hard-earned personal experience of addiction within her family.

Gain practical tools and the optimism needed to shift roadblocks ahead when a loved one is in the grips of active addiction.

Using the power of the group we learn from each other’s experiences and foster a sense of community and connection.

Why Focus on Positive Reinforcement & Natural Consequences?

Behavior change takes time, and so does healing from substance addiction, but we can start supporting positive behavior change now. Using our knowledge of what lights our loved one up, think playing guitar, comedy, exercise, etc. We’ll chart a course for how to bring more of those things back into their lives - as well as what we have power over withdrawing in the aftermath of using.

With Positive Reinforcement skills we’ll begin to see more of those healthy behaviors and less of the harmful ones. It doesn’t happen over night but recovery is a process and Positive Reinforcement will help us advance towards our goals of healthy and happy living for our loved ones and ourselves.

With Natural Consequences - CRAFT’s answer to getting out of the ‘enabling’ trap you’ll learn how to decipher the line between helping and harming. When to let natural consequences play out and when to step in.

Bios Village Guides:

Erica Lubetkin, LMHC, We The Village

Erica Lubetkin is a psychotherapist working with individuals and families to manage and navigate the world of addiction. Erica works with clients to learn coping skills and gain deeper meaning and purpose. She received her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from the City College of New York and has additional training in behavioral therapies including CRAFT. Erica found a home within We The Village in early 2018, reigniting her passion for the addiction space that had been stifled in traditional clinical environments that prefer 100 year old models of care instead of leading edge, clinical trial proven models. She is a pioneer in the space and has helped hundreds of Village members in the past year.

Jane Macky, Founder and CEO, We The Village

Jane Macky is the founder and CEO of We The Village, a company she founded in 2018 as the brainchild of her own fight to recover her husband’s life from addiction. Discovering that the tools she needed to help her loved one did not exist, and that traditional programs told her to detach, when it was clear instead he needed love and support. She made it her mission to revolutionize recovery, starting with empowering friends and family to help when someone they love is struggling with addiction. The online community at www.wethevillage.co is the first step towards that mission and gatherings is an extension of the online platform. Jane is trained by Dr. Robert Meyers in his method, Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT), which is proven in multiple clinical trials to be 70% effective at getting treatment resistant loved ones the help they need. Paticipated in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGASS) on Drugs in 2016. And holds a Yale BA in Psychology.
