The holiday season is traditionally difficult for many, but with the dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases, financial uncertainty, and fundamental changes to family and social traditions, many feel they are nearing a breaking point.
The recovery community, in particular, requires additional support during this time. Recovery Ways would like to be a part of the solution. The team at Recovery Ways is offering a seven-week course of community outreach and support groups via Zoom with specialized expert Recovery Ways facilitators.
The goal of the Holiday Support Series is to provide ways to connect with others, help participants understand and work with their personal and family triggers, and familiarize them with successful treatment concepts. The Recovery Ways series will start on Wednesday, November 25, and continue weekly through January 6.
