A Loved One’s Addiction

Our Friends & Family Support Group is offered for those concerned about someone else’s substance use or gambling. 

The person with the substance use or problem gambling behaviour doesn’t have to be a registered client of ASCO for family or friends to access this service.

The group meets together to share ideas and strategies, find support in one another, and process the impact that the substance use or problem gambling has had on relationships.

It is available to individuals, couples, and/or families (ages 25+), wishing to access support around their loved one’s (ages 25+) substance use and/or gambling problems.

How We Help

Participants leave with a better understanding of what effective support looks like and how to support themselves.

  • Orientation night (Attendance is mandatory)
  • What to know about addiction
  • Supporting through understanding
  • Supporting through self-care
  • Supporting with words
  • Supporting with action
  • Building a life
