In a self-help group, the members share a common problem or addiction. Their mutual goal is to help each other to deal with, if possible to heal or to recover from, this problem.

** Due to COVID 19, please call any meeting directly with the contact information provided on the Self Help Schedules before attending as groups have been cancelled or have alternate ways of providing service. See the link below for a list of online support groups**
