About This Support Group

Drug and alcohol abuse impacts more than the individual suffering from addiction; it affects their entire support system. Secondhand addiction can cause family and relationship issues, including physical, emotional, and mental pain for the partners of alcohol or drug-dependent individuals. Through this peer support group for spouses and partners of alcoholics and addicts, you will learn why it’s important for you to take time for yourself first, before you can provide any form of care to your loved one.

Led by licensed counselors and certified recovery coaches, this virtual recovery support group allows you to connect with other wives, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends, and significant others who have also had their lives changed by their loved one’s substance abuse. Each meeting provides a safe space for you to share stories and get advice on a range of topics including codependency and creating healthy boundaries.
