As loved ones, we have a unique experience and with that a unique expertise. We know them, we know their why, we can see behaviors, actions, and their use a mile away. We can use this expertise to help move someone into their recovery journey. At the same time, when we’ve been fighting so hard, we also know that our wellness takes a hit and that this family journey is a delicate balance between our fight for them and our fight for our own wellness. CRAFT gives us an amazing set of tools that tackles both.

Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. is proud to be a leader in creating a world where people have the power to achieve and celebrate recovery. CFLR supports individuals and families struggling with addiction, mental health, and behavioral issues by inspiring hope, providing help, promoting wellness, and transforming lives.
