The New Milford Substance Abuse Prevention Council will hold its next free parent support group Sept. 8 and 22 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The group, which meets at The Maxx on Railroad Street, meets the second and fourth Tuesday of each month.

It is open to parents and other adults concerned about a young person’s drug or alcohol use, as well as parents or struggling with a child who is addicted or in recovery.

Information and support regarding prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery will be given.

The group will include some structured discussion based upon concerns and interests of those attending, as well as time for questions and open discussion.

The program is facilitated by New Milford Youth Agency and High Watch Recovery staff.

The group is free and drop-ins are welcome.
