Purpose: Growth through grief:

The purpose of the Growth through Grief Committee is to offer a system of support for parents who have lost a child, parents whose children are in active addiction, parents whose children are in recovery and to share our experiences and children’s stories to help spread awareness and aid in prevention.

Our goals are to:

• serve as an intake system of new parents to determine where they are in the grief process and address their needs
• schedule regular meetings in areas throughout North Carolina to provide parents a support system to tie into
• build a support system of parents who have suffered loss, who have children in active addiction and parents of children in recovery to help other parents navigate their way
• recruit parents who are willing to speak about their experiences in meetings, schools, etc. to spread awareness and aid in prevention
