Grief Support Meetings

We want to express our deepest sympathy to anyone who has lost a loved one to the disease of addiction. It is important to seek the support of others so that we can begin to heal. The Learn to Cope members and those Coping Today are “family” and we are here to help.

Everyone goes through the process of grief differently. The stages of grief do not necessarily go in order, and there is no specific timetable for the length or timing of each stage. It can be a complicated process. It is important to be patient with yourself and to work through these intense emotions in your own way.

Please contact the group leader before attending the first meeting.
