Research has shown that COAs benefit from learning about the Seven Cs
 
The Seven Cs Workshop Series is an evidence based program that uses psychoeducational activites that help COAs understand that their loved one's addiction is not their fault, they are not alone, and there are ways to feel better and cope.
 
I didn't Cause it
I can't Cure it
I can't Control it
I can help Care for myself
I can Communicate my feeling
I can make healthy Choices
I can Celebrate me
