Support Groups

Support groups are non-professional peer groups comprising of members who share the same problem and voluntarily support one another in recovery.  Although formal treatment is not provided in groups of this nature, these groups provide social, emotional, and informational support for persons throughout the recovery process and are a major component of a person’s recovery plan.  Please contact the organization directly to receive the most up-to-date information.
