        Hi Chantal,
        The support group that PAD featured on our website is from an organization called Families for Addiction Recovery. They are a Canadian registered charity. While their groups are only located in the Toronto area at this time, they do have a P2P – Parent-to-parent program which provides confidential, individual peer support for parents who are concerned about a child with addiction. You can check out their website at or call them at 1-855-377-6677.

        Hope this helps.
