Families Coping with Addiction Support Group (Every first and third Wednesday – 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm) – When a family member has a substance use disorder, spouses, parents, siblings, and children often suffer in silence, living in turmoil as household stability and unity is negatively impacted by their family member’s progressive disease of addiction. Individuals caught up in a family member’s addiction are at risk for multiple life challenges, with social isolation and mental health problems among them. Destructive behavioral patterns such victimization, enabling and codependency can reinforce/ perpetuate the disease’s debilitating dynamics. If you are interested in learning how to break the cycle of dysfunctional relationship patterns associated with addiction, join us. Staela Keegan, MSW, LCSW, LCADC, facilitates this FREE support group which provides a confidential and psychologically safe environment for learning about:
practicing self-care and non-judgmental detachment, reducing emotional reactivity, informed decision making, and resource options. 169 Chestnut Street, Nutley, NJ 07110. Open to all. Please call (973) 667-1884 for more information.

Families Coping with Addiction Support Group

The Men’s Connection – A Group for Men in the Middle (Every 1st and 3rd Tuesday – 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm) – The issues impacting men in the established years of their lives may be overwhelming: balancing work, marriage, family, children, aging parents, and additional pressures. There are too many responsibilities with too few resources and little support. Men easily can lose the essence of who they are as males and individuals. Men are stronger than they may think, and do not have to “go it” alone. They can benefit by both raising self-awareness and making common connections with others. Come join us for this open enrollment, on-going, support group for men, age 30-60. Led by Joe Armentano, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist at NFSB.
