We are together because life is messy. That messiness might include addictions, illness, or choices (yours or someone else's).
These groups meet at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. There is no pre-registration or commitment required and no cost to you.
The Recovering Family Group
The Recovering Family Group is designed specifically for the family members of someone facing addiction. Close friends would also benefit from participating. It is led by a licensed therapist from OAR. Topics covered include: Expectations in Life & Recovery; The Brain & Addiction; Grief, Loss, and Blame; Codependency & Enabling in the Family. This group is not appropriate for children, though older teens may benefit at their parent's discretion and the discretion of the therapist leading the group.
Drug & Alcohol Addiction Group
This group focuses on drug and alcohol addiction. It is a peer-facilitated open share group, similar to what you'd experience at AA or Celebrate Recovery.
We have temporarily suspended our mental health groups, due to low participation but are exploring possibilities right now. Other recovery and support groups will be added as the needs, opportunities, and resources arise.
We currently do not have onsite childcare available; though we hope to add it in the future.
We need volunteers to help with: Greeters, snack-shoppers, coffee-makers, childcare providers (eventually), and others logistics.
