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. DOWNLOAD FLYER.

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.
