Sustained Recovery Group
Tuesday- 2:00 PM
This is an open group for adults who have experienced challenges with substance abuse/dependence that have at least one month of recovery. Participants may start at any time by referral. Most people that have attempted recovery agree that stopping using is not that difficult; staying clean is the hard part. Participants learn how to maintain sobriety, identify needs, implement learned skills, and overcome barriers to long term abstinence. This weekly group covers 32 topics essential for sustained recovery. Participants may be referred by their therapist and begin the group at any point.
