Power of PAL Event Features
PAL brings families seeking hope together.
PAL, Parents of Addicted Loved Ones, is a nonprofit organization providing resources to families as they navigate the journey of addiction with a loved one.
Free weekly meetings are open to all sober family members and friends 18 years and older, including spouses who feel they must parent their addicted partner. We warmly welcome persons of any faith or background who are seeking help with this issue.
In just seven years, there are already more than 150 meetings in 35 states, with the target of being in all 50 states in the coming year. Funds raised through the Power of PAL event will help bring PAL Group meetings to communities where PAL does not yet have a presence.
