Rebuild relationships through resilience & recovery 

The most important factor for supporting recovery and resiliency after trauma is relationships. For children, it’s all about having at least one safe and responsive caregiver they can depend on. For adults, it can be one good friend or supportive family member. Relationships with trauma-informed professionals can also help us reconnect with feelings of safety and trust.

We created the Thrive Substance Use Recovery Series to provide you with the resources to understand and support families in substance use recovery. Explore our online course, RISE to fully grasp what SUD is and its impacts. Use our curriculum manual, Hope at Home to help facilitate and guide your conversations with families in recovery.

This interactive, self-paced ONLINE COURSE will guide the participant’s journey into an enhanced understanding of Substance Use Disorder (SUD). While gaining foundational understanding, participants will learn to use that information to enhance, adapt, and integrate their skills to support families affected by substance use disorder.

RISE is an online training and does NOT include a curriculum.
