Chances are, if you are on this page right now, you love someone who struggles with alcohol and/or drug use. You care about this person greatly! You wish he or she would reach out for help. There HAS to be something you can do or say that may encourage him or her to get treatment. Good news – you have come to the right place. 

We invite you to join us for an 8-week coaching group designed to support and equip you as you walk alongside those in your life who use drugs and alcohol. We will spend about an hour each week talking about what life is like in your world; how to change communication and behavior patterns, and how to live freely as you navigate substance use in those around you.

You are a great fit for this group if:

  • You have daily contact, with a close family member or friend who uses drugs or alcohol in a problematic way
  • Your loved one has talked about getting treatment for their substance use, and has yet to take the plunge 
  • You find yourself trapped between wanting to help and not wanting to hurt — and are not sure how to achieve either result 
  • You are increasingly agitated and frustrated with those you love who are using alcohol or drugs because their choices hurt you
  • You are not sure if you are “enabling” or “helping”

The Substance Use Coaching Group meets online on Tuesdays from 11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m. on Zoom. Our hope is that you will be able to grab your lunch and get to know other people going through similar situations as you. You are not alone! 

In addition to weekly meetings, as a group member, you will receive:

  • One 50 minute, individual coaching session with Lauren, group facilitator and counselor, during the 8-week program 
  • Assessments that will help you understand yourself more fully and track your progress during this leg of your journey 
  • Support and troubleshooting communication and behavioral techniques proven to increase the chances of your loved one participating in substance use treatment 
  • A personalized, aftercare plan to continue after the group ends 
  • A follow-up phone call to check in to see how your plan is progressing and provide further resources
