Substance Abuse Group

How to Get Control of Your Life

This group is for anyone who needs guidance and information from alcohol and drug addiction. This group will help those who are in early recovery, those who aren’t quite sure if they have a problem, people who have tried to stop using, and those who are concerned about a loved one’s use. Laila, the group facilitator, worked at Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation as an Addiction Counselor in both residential and intensive outpatient settings prior to coming to Shoreside Therapies. The format of the group will be educational and group discussion.

  • Am I an alcoholic or addict and am I ready for recovery
  • Learning about the disease of addiction
  • What is the recovery process
