ENDING THE OPIOID CRISIS

Host a Recovery Support Group

Support groups play a fundamental role on the road to recovery. Gathering with others offers encouragement, guidance and accountability Groups can be made up of individuals who are working toward the same 12-step goals, see the same therapy team, or share the same faith.

Plan:
Who will be involved/ who are group leaders?
Who will be your contact person? Someone individuals can contact if interested in the group.
Are meetings open or closed? Most commonly meetings are open to the community.
Location / Time / Day. Most groups meet in the evening hours.
What will be your official launch date?

Before launching:
You may want to seek additional training.
We recommend you practice at least one session.
Advertise your group! You can do this through church and community bulletin boards or social media.

After official launch
Debrief and consider pros and cons
