Family Members Support

Family Support Group is a place of education and support for those struggling with knowing how to cope well with an addicted loved one. These groups offer hope and understanding in a setting with others who are walking similar paths. They are open to anyone who has a loved one struggling with substance use and they meet weekly on either Monday or Thursday starting at 6:30pm.

If you are interested in participating or would like more information, contact Carie Wimberly.

From Our Participants

“Just when you feel the most isolated and alone from your child’s addiction, this group is there to support you on your journey. You are not alone.”
“Joining a Family Support Group is a way to stay “in the know” on resources for us and our children. Learn about other’s experiences with local rehab services, how they work, and cost, as well as gaining knowledge to learn how to best help ourselves and our loved one.”
“Attending a Family Support Group has been crucial to my ability to stay on the right course when it comes to mine and my wife’s self-care and how to re-shape my responses to my loved ones.”
