Weekly Support Meetings for Mothers Against Addiction
At Mothers Against Addiction, we understand that the journey of a mother coping with her child’s addiction or grieving the loss of a child is incredibly challenging. To provide a compassionate space for mothers navigating these difficult experiences, we host weekly 60-minute Zoom meetings on Thursdays at 4 pm Pacific Time. During these meetings, mothers come together to share their stories, offer support, and help one another heal.
