Treats PTSD and Substance Use Simultaneously
Mondays, 1:30-2:30 p.m. Online
This group is designed for former service members with substance abuse and trauma. “Trauma” means that a person has suffered a severe life event, such as physical or sexual abuse, a car accident, or a natural disaster. Many service members who abuse substances have experienced trauma during their lifetime. The group will consist of 10 therapy topics. Both trauma and substance abuse issues are worked on at the same time to promote the most successful recovery possible. Discussing your experiences with others can help you feel connected to those who share similar life challenges. This group aims to provide a safe place for camaraderie and healing. Individual counseling sessions are also available to schedule after group.

WHAT IS TBRI®?
TBRI® offers practical tools for parents, caregivers, teachers or anyone who works with children, to see the “whole child” in their care and help that child reach his highest potential.
TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children or children from “hard places.” TBRI® is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research. As TBRI® addresses the child’s physical needs, attachment needs, and tools to disarm fear-based behaviors, it is applicable to all children and parents.
WHEN: Tuesdays, 6:00 p.m.

This Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) Support Group is set in an open and virtual format to assist veterans, active-duty personnel, and their family members to address any issues they might be dealing with. There will be two facilitators to present any resources that might help. We also invite each member of the group to participate and give input to assist others.
This will be a safe environment for all to express how they feel in a respectful manner. There have been many added stressors to everyone’s lives recently due to the changing restrictions put forth to try to protect public health.
Our goal is to assist our servicemembers, veterans, and their families in finding ways to help lighten the load and cope with today’s day-to-day life and its ongoing challenges. This group will meet on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm.
Please don’t hesitate to join us.
If an additional group is needed, we will schedule one.
