Substance Affected Group

 Substance Affected GroupsThe family members of someone dealing with substance abuse can be left feeling turned upside down.  There is help for parents, partners, grandparents, guardians and close friends of people suffering from addiction.

SHARE Family and Community Services is offering a group for people affected by someone else’s substance misuse. Topics discussed are chosen by group members, but it provides the tools these caregivers need to cope at home, as well as how to explain irregular behavior to children.  Other topics have included ways to approach the substance misuser that help or hinder, and self-care, how to support one another.

This is a free, 6-8 week group for men and women.


To register for the group contact or for general information, call 604-936-3900.
