FSCA’s Family Group provides a unique forum for persons in recovery from substance use, and the families and friends of persons in recovery or who have lost family or friends to the disease of addiction, to meet in an informal, comfortable setting. The group invites the public, not only FSCA clients, to come and share their experience, strength and hope in a supportive group of people who are also navigating a path through addiction and other mental disorders.
There is no similar group in the Jackson area, and FSCA has an array of groups incomparable locally. The Family Group is bringing addiction and mental disorders to light, and giving the Jackson recovery community another place to find healing and hope. FSCA has provided a comfortable, informal, nonjudgmental space for my 13-yr-old and my husband to join me in my recovery and meet other people who either are recovering themselves or love a person who is recovering or who is not with them anymore.
Instead of a formal, dull didactic lead by a presenter, the family group gives each person attending a chance to share. It has allowed my family to hear first-hand experience, struggles, and successes with addiction and other mental disorders. The Family Group has helped our family process the trauma we have been through because of my disease. Marissa
