Our members are people who love their children deeply, yet still find their families damaged by addiction. Learn to cope is a place for people to share their experiences, wisdom, strength, resources, and most importantly, hope. Meeting members must be the parent, family member, spouse or loved one of a person who is struggling with the disease of addiction or is in recovery. Confidentiality of anything said in our meetings and the privacy of our group members is valued above all else. Our meetings offer a safe place where individuals are free to share without being judged, where empathy is given and where feelings are respected. Learn to Cope does not endorse or promote any particular form of treatment or recovery. Rather, we invite guest speakers to our meetings to educate our members about all treatment options, the disease of addiction and other topics, and to offer hope for recovery.
We'll provide written materials containing information about our meeting locations, the physical signs and changes in behavior to look out for when someone suspects a loved one is using opiates, and a LTC representative to answer questions about our organization.
