The Support Group Project is an online directory of support groups for families struggling with a loved one’s addiction.  Approximately 2/3 of all families are impacted by addiction, yet too often, these families feel alone, isolated and stigmatized as they struggle with the effects of this devastating disease.  Help us connect them – help us create a community of support across the country.

If you host a group that provides support for parents or loved ones of children who are dealing with a substance use issue, please consider joining The Support Group Project. Registering your group is free, easy and only requires minimal updating.
