Do you know how important you are to Recovery?
Family Support Group Meetings
Topic: Setting Boundaries around the Holidays
The recovery community is strengthened when families add their voices because family support is vital to building recovery in the community. Our intention is to promote healing and long-term recovery for all. Education, support services and advocacy result in healthier individuals, families and communities.
Speaker: Gloria Englund, MA

“Saving the lives of those who are affected by this disease [addiction] will only happen when the general public gets angry enough to demand that the people who suffer from these disorders deserve the same medical treatment and compassion as anyone suffering from a chronic illness.”
