THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:

Peer support for people with similar life experiences has proven to be tremendously important towards helping many move through difficult situations. These similar life experiences may include people who have lost children, people with alcohol and substance abuse problems, and etc.  In general, the value of peer support has been substantiated by the fact that people who have like experiences can better relate and can consequently offer more authentic empathy and validation. A Peer Support Group is a voluntary gathering of people with similar challenges to share experiences, reveal coping strategies and offer understanding. Tonight we will take a closer look at the peer support group concept through the eyes a newly formed organization whose mission is to embrace, educate and empower families and communities impacted by substance use disorder. Can a Peer Support Group be what you have been looking for?
