Sunday is Father’s Day, and while many dads will be celebrating, some wonder if they will ever re-connect with their kids. The Haymarket Center is treating addiction as a disease, not a choice. Part of the program is focused on fathers. Because the heroin epidemic is not only ravaging the lives of users, it’s ripping apart families.

WGN’s Gaynor Hall takes a look at the Fatherhood program this Father’s Day weekend; a program that aims to heal families wounded by addiction.

The Fatherhood program at Haymarket is an off-shoot of a program for Moms. The goal is healing entire families, to break the cycle of addiction. You can find these programs by clicking these links.
