Welcome to Newtown Parent Connection


The mission of the Newtown Parent Connection is to educate and empower the community in the prevention of substance abuse and to embrace families in crisis.

We hope you and your loved ones are well, as we continue to navigate through this pandemic. Parent Connection is inviting you to our weekly scheduled virtual Zoom meeting for our Hope & Support Groups. We realize that within this rapidly changing environment it is normal for us to find ourselves dealing with additional fear and anxiety which seem to be exacerbated by the amount of uncertainties we now face on a daily basis. Our normal life of worries for our loved one who is actively using or in recovery has now been intensified by our new “norm”. As many of us are now isolated, it becomes vital for us to stay connected as a community in a manner which is safe and risk free. To that end, we invite you to attend our virtual Milford/Fairfield Hope & Support Support meeting each Wednesday from 7 – 8 PM and/or our Newtown Hope & Support meeting each Thursday from 7 – 8 PM.

Also, our next monthly Bereavement Group is scheduled for Tuesday, June 2nd from 7 - 8:30 PM. Please click on the box for further info.

During this time of unprecedented isolation, we want you to know that we are available to discuss any concerns or fears you may have. Please reach out if you are feeling secluded or alone or if you have a loved one in the throes of addiction. We can offer referrals and services to ease the feelings of desperation you maybe experiencing. You can contact the office at 203 270-1600 at any time and we will connect you with one of our facilitators who will be more than happy to talk with you. We are ALL here for you! If you prefer to email, please send your questions to Dorrie@NewtownParentConnection.org. BE SAFE....STAY HEALTHY!!!
