Friends & Family Support Group

Addiction is not viewed within the individual alone. We view it within the context of your physiology, your family and your culture.

 

The Adult Substance Use Program supports adults who are twenty-five years of age and older as well as their families in making changes to the harmful use and impacts of substances in their lives.

 

The Friends & Family Support Group is for individuals, couples, and/or families (ages 25+), wishing to access support around their loved one’s (ages 25+) substance use and/or gambling problems.
