Family addiction support groups are for individuals who have a family member or significant other struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction. Addiction is a “family disease.” An addicted person not only negatively impacts their own life but also those around them. Families of addicts struggle to cope with their loved ones’ addictive choices and find themselves struggling with feelings of guilt, shame, anxiety, and anger.

Herren Project’s family support groups provide a safe peer-to-peer environment where family members can work through feelings with others who have shared experiences. Group members will have time to express concerns, ask questions, and share progress and celebrate victories about the effect the abuse of substances has had on their family. Counselors will also educate group members on topics like codependency, how to create and maintain healthy boundaries, and self-care.

All family addiction support groups are led by licensed clinicians and social workers who have experience in drug and alcohol-related addiction counseling.

All groups meet on EST.

Support groups meet weekly in an online video classroom and are offered free of charge. All you need is a computer or phone to join.

All are welcome and participation (speaking/sharing) is not required. You must be 18 years of age to participate.

Groups are limited in size to offer the best level of support and education and may be closed from time to time. Please check specific registration forms for details and to be added to the waiting list.
