Trauma / PTSD
Thursday's @ 6pm
A safe, nurturing, accepting environment in which painful feelings and experiences can be shared with others.
By normalizing the experience of recovery and increasing the survivor’s self-efficacy through education and resource sharing, support groups have the potential to strengthen the survivor’s coping, as well as reduce isolation.
Disordered Eating Recovery
Tuesday's and Sunday's at 5:30pm
Unfortunately, our society supports disordered eating. Disordered eating is when you use food and/or exercise to control your feelings. You might limit your intake based on a diet or on how much exercise you have done that day. Disordered eating comes in all different forms: not eating enough, eating past full, purging, laxatives, excessive exercise, only eating clean or healthy, etc.
An addiction can provide a way to numb out feelings or emotions, or it can give you a high that releases endorphins.
This includes drugs, alcohol, food, pornography, shopping, video games, gambling, sex, love, etc. Regardless of the addiction, it is doing the same job for all of us. All addicts are welcome.
We take one day at a time and focus on the present.
Women have a unique ability to show strong commitment to themselves and grow through connecting with others, but it is a skill that has to be encouraged and supported. This group offers a space to process thoughts and feelings about your life, hopes, and fears through hearing from others as well as getting others' perspectives on what you choose to share.
Men are evolutionarily hardwired for connection, closeness, and talking things through, yet our modern-day society seems to push men toward isolation. Here, men can come together to support each other with their personal challenges so they can experience personal growth in any area from divorce or parenting to illness or career issues while feeling supported mentally and emotionally.
Teens face an onslaught of potential problems everyday: anxiety, self-esteem, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse issues, etc. Teens need all the help they can get, and this group has the valuable benefit of letting teens know that they are not alone. Normalizing group therapy increases the likelihood that they will open up which greatly supports their recovery.
Families play a very important role in supporting a loved one with an eating disorder or an addiction. These problems are very hard to understand or support. The things you might want to say are actually the hardest things for a person with an eating disorder or addiction to hear. This group is designed to allow families and loved ones a place to express their emotions.
Anxiety can start to take over your daily life if you allow it to. This group is designed to share ideas, techniques, and tools that can help with recognizing, overcoming, and eliminating the daily triggers and attacks. It is also a space to talk about whatever is helpful to decrease present feelings of anxiety for group members at that point and time.
Faith Based Recovery
For many people, a connection to a higher power is essential in their recovery. Whether you find this connection with God, the Universe, music, nature, love, animals, or anything else is completely up to you. For this group, we use the Bible as a guiding text to support the recovery process of our members. The direction of the group is up to the members to decide.
Healthy body image and
self-esteem are a big part of well-being. Body image includes both how you feel about your appearance and what you see when you look at yourself in the mirror. Often, this mental image can be quite different than reality. Body image is more about how you feel than how you actually look, and this group was created to help you navigate and overcome those feelings.
Sex/love addictions can be shameful for many. The truth is that society has allowed this addiction to be supported and almost celebrated. For the member struggling though, it doesn't feel enjoyable. It feels out of control and obsessive. This group is designed to be a safe space for members to open up about their behaviors as well as their traumatic pasts that led to their current addictions.
Addict Family Support
Families play a very important role in supporting a loved one with an addiction or mental health illness. It can be confusing, scary and frustrating; never knowing what to say or how to help. This support group is designed to help loves ones have a place to speak openly, ask questions and gains tools to support their family member or friend with their road to recovery.
It is our hope that individuals find our LGBTQ Group to be a safe outlet for them to discuss their challenges and find a sense of community. Whether you are coming out, transitioning, building a new relationship or family we provide a place that is safe to be who you really are.
Life After Divorce
Divorce recovery support group where you can find help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce. Our goal is to educate and support people going through divorce or separation so that they can better adjust as they transition into their new lives.
Grief & Loss
Friday's @ 6pm
Those who have lost someone might feel adrift, alone and need someone to talk to. We offer comfort and support to families, caregivers, and community members who are anticipating or coping with the loss of a loved one.
