Sessions will be held at the Holy Redeemer Church Hall for six consecutive Tuesday nights from 7 to 8 p.m. beginning Sept. 6 and continuing each Tuesday through Oct. 11.
More information is available by contacting Michele Bertot at (606) 796-3052.
The series will include:
• Identifying the disease of addiction.
• Understanding its progress, how the addicted loved one decides to get help, the recovery process and recovery of the entire family.
• Learning 10 things a family member or friend can do to help. Recovery of the addicted person often begins with positive action by the family. The "Loved One’s Group" is a positive step toward helping the addicted program.
"These sessions and the group are going to be entirely confidential. No enrollment or personal information is required to take part," said Anita Gilbert, director of Lewis County CARES (Community Access to Resources, Education and Support).
Gilbert and the CARES office, at 93 Third St. in Vanceburg, has been hosting meetings of Never Alone, Never Again, an organization seeking to provide centers where recovering drug and alcohol addicts can gain support in getting their lives back together again.
