Are you and your family concerned about a
loved one's substance use and or addiction...

We can help!


Parents Empowering Parents (PEP) Society was founded over 15 years ago as a result of a need.  Parents were out of solutions, hopeless, and alone in dealing with the issue of substance abuse/addiction in the home. Our co-founders identified the most significant way to help our youth/adult children with substance abuse/addiction issues was through supporting and educating the parents & families.

The Inukshuk is a symbol of communication and survival.

Each stone is supported by the other – very much like members of a family or community. No one piece is more –  or less – important than the another.

With the support of others, we are more likely to succeed. The Inukshuk reminds us of our need to belong to something greater than ourselves, to invest in our future, and to share the responsibility of our existence in the community.
