Weekly Topics and Skills

Each session we’ll cover the foundational series of CRAFT skills, knowing that the more we hear these new skills and practice them the more they’ll become our default way of interacting with our loved one and ourselves. And the better the outcomes for all involved.

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 and to tolerate the journey - important, given that connection is the opposite of addiction.

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 guides Erica & Jane, who will teach us 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.

Jane founded Village when she learned evidence-based skills to support her husband’s recovery that were not accessible to most.

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.

The online community at is the first step towards that mission and gatherings is an extension of the online platform.
