Blue Cross Brazil has run Self Help groups for adults effected or using Drugs or Alcohol for years. The group participants have often brought their children with them as there was no other place for them whilst adults had wanted to attend the group. For this need BC Brazil developped kids support groups and noticed that children have as high needs for peer support in their difficult Family citcumstances as the adults.
In these groups youth can feel safe to talk about their feelings and find healthy solutions to Family life in order to avoid co- dependency that is common risk for children of people who suffer from addiction.
You can follow the lively work of BC Brazil through their Facebook. Thank you for your support for this vital work!
