Join us each month to discuss, share and support each other as we navigate the challenges of supporting a family member struggling with alcoholism/substance use disorder, while still taking care of ourselves! Each month we will have a brief guest speaker and plenty of time to share in a safe, anonymous setting. *please note, this meeting is being moved from Wednesday, Feb. 7, to Wednesday, Feb. 21, because of a pending snow storm.
Our guest speaker for February is Kathleen Heath Blais. She is the mother of Seth Blais, a writer and Bangor Daily News blogger who recently started openly and publically sharing his experiences and personal struggles with the misuse of drugs and alcohol. She will share her personal experience of getting to the point of acceptance and letting go, making tough decisions, setting boundaries, letting Seth be responsible for his own recovery, and personally working on her own healing.
*Please note, this an adult support group. Material discussed may not be suitable for children or adolescents
