4 sessions - Session 1 of 4

  • Are you concerned about your relationship with Drugs and/or Alcohol?
  • Have you tried to stop using on your own but were unsuccessful?
  • Have you experienced a blackout?

If you responded yes to any of the above, come join our group. During these 4-weeks we will examine a variety of aspects regarding drug and alcohol addiction.  Together we will look at the various stages of addiction and recovery, provide psycho-educational materials, examine a variety of coping strategies, provide a comfortable atmosphere and reduce the stigma associated with substance use/abuse.

“The Substance (Mis)use group was very helpful for me in re-examining my relationship with drugs and alcohol. I was concerned with my own behaviour for some time, and entering into this group gave me a safe space to explore these concerns with others. It destigmatized addiction, and more so presented it as an element of mental health, with tangible physical and neurological implications. Through the length of the group, I was able to hone my toolbox and more introspectively assess my own addiction issues, and apply these tools in the real world.

As well, the group cultivated an open and sharing environment and, although the group was compromised of different people with vastly different levels of addiction issues, we were all able to share and listen together. I would recommend this group to people from all walks who are interested in learning more about themselves, and relationship they have with drugs and alcohol.”
