Alcohol and Other Drug Education and Support Groups
Primarily for parents, spouses/partners and other family members concerned about a loved one's harmful use of alcohol or other drugs.
Are you a parent or other family member concerned about a loved one’s use of alcohol or other drugs? You’re not alone! Addiction negatively impacts the users’ lives and the lives of those who love them.
Parents, spouses/partners and other family members, desperate for help with an addicted love one, find little basic information available about alcohol and other drug addiction. In response to this need, Glenbeigh is sponsoring a series of free education and support groups for people concerned with a loved one’s harmful use of substances.
2013 – 2014 Schedule:
Attend one or both - the education group and the support group.
Education Groups – 5:00 PM to 5:50 PM
Education groups will provide participants with basic information about addiction and related topics that will assist group members in establishing healthy boundaries and recognizing the difference between responding to and taking responsibility for the user.
Support Groups – 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Support groups are open-ended gatherings for people concerned about a loved one’s harmful use of alcohol or other drugs. Discussions will include how to make healthier choices when dealing with addiction. Participants may choose to listen or actively contribute. This is not a 12 Step self-help group.
Participants are welcome to attend one or all of the following education groups:
November 1, 2013 – Medical Marijuana: The Myths and Facts
November 8, 2013 – The Neurobiology of Addiction
November 15, 2013 – Alcohol and Other Drugs: Signs and Symptoms
