    Do you have an immediate family member who has or has had
    substance use challenges within your family? What is the impact of this
    experience on your sense of self and on the health of the family as a whole?
    How does this dynamic impact your relationships? What are the best ways to
    implement and navigate boundaries (e.g. when a family member who struggles
    with substance use asks for money)? This group is open to people of diverse
    backgrounds and its goal will be to foster empathic, kind relationships among
    members while providing a safe space to process one’s feelings about the past
    and present family experiences in an emotionally-focused manner. The group
    will be smaller in size than Al-Anon and allow for back-and-forth
    communication between members to a greater degree than
    typical Al-Anon groups.

    In time, the goal of the group will be to promote emotional openness, a strong
    sense of self, healthy boundaries, and serenity inside and outside of the group
    therapy experience.

    *Prior to the official start date, two pre-interview sessions will occur to go
    over group policies/boundaries, to ensure level of fit for this group, and/or
    to help find a group that fits your current needs.

    Please note, for those who struggle with substance use, it will be best to address
    this in individual therapy/another group whose purpose it is to address
    substance use directly given the unique nature of this group’s focus on
    experiences with family/family member(s).
