Support group heart

Parents of Addicted Love Ones (PAL) is a new organization in Belen that helps parents deal with the issues surrounding an adult child struggling with addiction.

PAL provides education, fellowship and hope. PAL’s free weekly meetings offer an evidence-based curriculum to help parents learn healthy ways to deal with the challenges of addiction, and time for parent-to-parent support to exchange ideals and suggestions.

The meetings are led by trained volunteer facilitators who have experienced the issues first-hand, and are open to not just parents, but to spouses, grandparents, siblings and close friends, as long as they are 18 and older.

The free meetings are held at 6 p.m. on Tuesdays at Christian Family Church of God, 318 South Sixth St. in Belen. For information, call the facilitator, Robert, at 948-9017, or visit
