Schedule

Day 1
Addiction: Not My Fault

9 AM – 3:30 PM
After creating a safe, supportive environment, children learn basic facts and information about the disease of alcoholism and other drug addiction.  Through a variety of interactive games and play they come to understand key concepts such as loss of control, addiction, relapse, treatment, and recovery.  Most importantly children begin to realize that a loved one’s addiction is not their fault.

Day 2
A Feelings Disease: It’s OK to Share My Feelings

9 AM – 3:15 PM
Armed with accurate age-appropriate information about addiction, youngsters begin to examine the impact this disease has had upon them by talking about it and sharing feelings.  Children deepen their skills in identifying and expressing their feelings in balanced ways and breaking the “no talk” rule so prevalent in addicted families.  Through writing stories, artwork, or composing letters to “Dear Addiction”, children prepare to share with their caregivers on day three.

Day 3
The Heart of Recovery: Taking Care of Me (Part 1)

9 AM – 3:00 PM (caregivers participate)
Children learn a variety of ways to take good care of themselves and stay safe.  In a structured format with their caregivers, youngsters share art, stories or letters so they can express their feelings about how addiction has affected and impacted them.  Children come to understand that it’s okay to ask for help and there are safe people and places to go for help.
Changing the Family Legacy: Celebrating You and Me (Part 2) 
Children and caregivers participate together for the majority of the day.  They share what they like and love about each other, plans to take good care of themselves, and ways the family can grow together.  Both children and caregivers talk, trust and feel in a brand new way.
Funded in part  by a grant from OSMA Foundation.

Continuing Care Groups/Reunion

Family Support Groups (formerly Continuing Care or Reunion Groups) are held the first Monday of each month.
Peaceful Family Oklahoma (PFO) provides an on-going continuing care group for the children who participate and complete the PFO  program.  The Family Support Group allows the children to continue to reunite on a weekly basis.  Kids continue to learn new coping skills, how to express his or her feelings, ways to stay safe, and the importance of “Being a Kid!” Adults have the opportunity to expand their toolbox for parenting children whose lives have been impacted by addiction.
The program occurs the first Monday of each month from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.  Everyone enjoys dinner together, play games and participate in peer-to-peer groups to enhance coping and problem-solving skills.
