Peer Support Groups

Your Peers may better understand what life is like for you because they experience it themselves. Foundations’ members meet to offer emotional support, and basic living and social skills that can help increase feelings of self-worth, decrease social isolation and encourage independent living.
The Peer Support Group also allows you to exercise the Peer Support Training by sharing thoughts, feelings and experiences on the journey through recovery.

Adult Children of Alcoholics

The term “adult child” is used to describe adults who grew up in alcoholic or dysfunctional homes and who exhibit identifiable traits that reveal past abuse or neglect. The group includes adults raised in homes without the presence of alcohol or drugs.

These members have the trademark presence of abuse, shame, and abandonment found in alcoholic homes. The group embraces the difficult task of trauma work, which can often lead to an exciting journey to the Inner Child or True Self to help the adult child accomplish the greatest level of emotional healing from an abusive upbringing.

Dual Recovery
(DR)

  ​​
Dual Recovery (DR) is a 12-step program for people who have two issues at the same time: problems with drugs or alcohol, plus an emotional or psychiatric illness.  Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous do not deal with the issues faced by people with mental illness. By the same accord, most mental health programs do not deal with drug or alcohol problems.
DR is set up to address all these problems together. A combined 12-step program like this can be very appropriate and powerful in the path of recovery for many people. All statements made within the meeting are confidential.

Grief Group

This group was created when the owner of a local funeral home contacted Foundations and asked to assist in the creation of a grief support group.

This class has multiple community members who have lost a loved one, along with our volunteers.

 L.G.B.T. Group
(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) 

LGBT group can help someone dealing with issues anywhere along a continuum – from the point where they are questioning their sexuality through dealing with the challenges of possibly coming out at work or struggling with gay relationship issues. We do this through peer support.

This means that support groups are led by other LGBT people. This allows LGBT community to support each other through life’s challenges.
