The New Milford Youth Agency has announced the formation of a new free parent support group, set to begin July 29 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at The Maxx on Railroad Street.

Following the first meeting, the group will meet the fourth Tuesday of each month.

The group is for parents and other adults concerned about a young person's drug or alcohol use, as well as parents 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 sponsored by the New Milford Substance Abuse Prevention Council. It will be facilitated by New Milford Youth Agency and High Watch Recovery staff.

The group is free, and drop-ins are welcome.
