The GAF Group, Grief and Family Support Combined, are for individuals who have a family member or significant other struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction and are also grieving the loss of a loved one to the disease. Trying to cope with the loss of a loved one as well as someone in active addiction or recovery is challenging and filled with a much more complicated rollercoaster of emotions. Herren Project knows that this requires an entirely different group for support. A safe place for families struggling to share their feelings of grief, 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 families. 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.
Herren Project helps individuals find treatment for drugs and alcohol quickly, easily and affordably. Our trusted team will navigate the process with you to find the clinical support you need and deserve.
Free 15-minute one-on-one consultations with our licensed clinicians are available to all families affected by drug and alcohol addiction to provide insight into how to handle a loved one’s illness. Schedule today.
Herren Project offers sober housing scholarships and recovery coaching mentors to provide those completing treatment the chance to get back on their feet and transition to sober life in a safe and successful way.
“Recovery is so much more than one person’s journey. It includes everyone who loves them.” – Chris Herren
