Maybe you've just caught them a few times.
Maybe their use is beginning to concern you. 
Or maybe the use seems out of control, nothing seems to be working, and you feel helpless and scared.

What if there was an empowering intervention model that worked for any stage of use?

Trina Faatz & Laura Bressler
We've been there...we can help.

                                Trina is an advocate for child welfare and family wholeness. Having been a volunteer school                                  representative for the Parent Engagement Network (PEN) for 9 years, and on the Board of                                      Directors for Voices for Children/CASA for 13 years, she now serves on the Board of                                                Directors for Natural Highs, and is well versed in struggles and challenges facing youth and                                  parents today. Three years ago, two of her close friends lost a child to an overdose, and                                        Trina learned that her daughter also struggled with Substance and Opioid Use Disorder. Having navigated the system, treatment options, and intervention services, she and her daughter slowly created their own treatment module and rebuilt their family's relationships and trust. Trina went on to get certified as a Peer Recovery Coach to work with parents and teens struggling with the challenges of substance use.  Now, as the facilitator of the Boulder County Substance Use Advisory Group for Boulder County Community Services, she also leads and program directs Youth in Recovery, a group of young adult panelists in recovery who present in high school classrooms. Both of these community based advocacy and educational programs bring a personal and humane approach to intervention and hope.            


                              Laura is also a mom of a young adult in recovery. After struggling for many years, with                                            numerous treatment approaches, her son found long-term recovery, and is now running                                         a sober adventure travel business. Throughout their harrowing family ordeal, Laura                                                 and her husband learned what they could do differently as parents to positively impact their                                 son's recovery. Becoming passionate about helping other families, Laura received her                                             Master's in Addiction Studies in order to become a Licensed Addiction Counselor, and became a Certified Coach specializing in working with families struggling with substance abuse. She is also a Master's trained trauma therapist, using Brainspotting Therapy and Acudetox to help individuals process and heal from traumas impacting their lives. She serves on the Board and as a member of the Natural Highs team in Boulder, creating parent advocacy and facilitating substance use education groups. Laura is passionate to share C.R.A.F.T. with families in both groups and in private sessions, as they seek skills that work to impact their child's substance use and to repair family connections.
