Family Support Group

The Family Support Group is a weekly support group designed specifically for the families, partners, friends and carers of people experiencing addiction or mental health concerns. The course is available to everyone, including those with loved ones who are still struggling, whose loved ones are in treatment or who are in recovery.

Available as part of our

Family Programs Workshops


Do you have a loved one who is struggling with addiction? Are you feeling helpless, confused, angry or scared?

The Family Support Group has been designed to provide ongoing support and education to family members and loved ones of people experiencing addiction or in early stages of recovery.

The people closest to a person with addiction are often drawn into behaving in ways and doing things that they are conflicted and uncomfortable about. This is the addiction at work. The program helps family members to see how the addiction is impacting them and others in the family. Improving understanding and knowledge around addiction and mental health is empowering and freeing.

This group is facilitated by experienced and qualified therapists who offer support and education for family members and friends and provide a safe and non-judgmental environment where they can relate and share their own experiences and feelings with other group members who are experiencing the same feelings.
