ACOA Support Group
Please note: This group is on hold, please sign up to our newsletter to learn when we’ll have another group scheduled.
A support group for those affected by being raised in an “alcoholic household.” The group will be especially helpful for those wanting to learn more about ACOA (Adult Child of Alcoholics) features (which are on a spectrum and vary from person to person), identifying similar patterns among members and offering support and connection to each other over personal experiences. The group will also offer the opportunity to booster strength and hope in members. It is also helpful for those that identify with Alanon, as well as those who do not; all are welcome.
- Issues: Addiction, Codependency, Relationship Issues
