Mediation through LAWV

Written by Legal Aid WV


Legal Aid of West Virginia has started a mediation program to help families affected by drug use. One of our goals is to help people in recovery reconnect with their children. Another goal is to help lower the burden on relatives caring for children while their parent is recovering.

Mediation can help families:

  • Communicate easily
  • Pass information about children
  • Lower trauma to children

You can learn more about mediation/alternative dispute resolution here.

This program is sponsored by Equal Justice Works and the Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts.
