Primarily for parents, spouses/partners, family members or anyone concerned about a loved one's harmful use of alcohol or other drugs.
Are you concerned about a loved one's use of alcohol or other drugs? You're not alone! Addiction is at epidemic levels and negatively impacts the users' life and the lives of those who love them.
It is easy to become addicted to prescribed drugs or illicit drugs. People who love an alcoholic or addict are desperate for help and find little basic information available regarding alcohol or 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.
Attend one or both - the education group and/or 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 Thursday evening education groups:
5/15/14 The Neurobiology of Addiction
5/22/14 Alcohol and Other Drugs, What You Should Know
