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.

Wednesday, November 27th – 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm – Families Coping with Addiction Support Group – 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.
