"Before you can break out of prison, you must realize you are locked up."
Guidelines for attending
Naloxone kits and training will be available at all meetings.
Due to the emotional subject matter and lack of supports, I understand that people mayfeel the need to share large portions of their stories, however due to the size of thegroups the facilitator may have to interject to keep on topic. Please do not take offenseto this as we all should be entitled to share our stories.
Due to the sensitive nature of this topic we understand that people who haveexperienced addictions in many forms may feel compelled to join, however we want toreiterate this group is inclusive for friends and families of those supporting loved onescurrently experiencing substance use disorders or are in Recovery. Should this not applyto you, please see me after the meeting and I would be happy to provide you withresources specific to your situation.
Please note that the language we use is very important, we would ask you to take note of the language the facilitator uses as this helps dispel shame and stigma, however know that there will be no judgement should you choose not to use the language suggested during our meetings. Naloxone kits and training will be available at all meetings.
