JFCS is offering this support group for family members who have a loved one grappling with current or past substance use issues.
Addictions of all kinds can create turmoil in the lives of those grappling with their dependencies and can directly impact family
members and loved ones. This support group will help ease the feeling of isolation as a loved one of a person struggling with
addiction. Join with others who have experienced similar challenges. In addition to sharing personal experiences, insights, and
advice, you will learn about and engage with speakers on topics related to co-dependency, self-care, combating denial, healthy
role modeling, depression & anxiety, and how to feel empowered in confronting these issues.
Cost: Cost for all sessions: $36 per person for new members. $18 for returning members. Registration required. Reduced
rate available based on need.
