PALGROUP,--Parents of Addicted Loved Ones”—is a national organization for parents, family members, and significant others who have loved ones who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. The primary goal of PAL is to provide hope through education and support for parents, family members, and others who dealing with addicted loved ones. Each week there is an educational component that informs participants about addiction and issues related to addiction. There is also a portion for discussion and sharing of experiences. In addition, Palgroup facilitators, although laypeople who must have an addicted child or significant other in order to serve as such, are trained to facilitate the meetings. Every four to six weeks, a professional addiction counselor or social worker will be invited to speak on a relevant topic or issue.
