The lead article in the May issue of The Arbor describes how a family support group blessed the life of one sister whose life had dealt her a series of severe blows. Through participating in the family support group she was able to feel hope again and return fully to her church family and church activity.
Family support groups are not for recovering addicts, but for those whose lives are so profoundly affected by the addictions of loved ones—spouse, children, or close friends. In addition, a family support group can bring the healing blessings of the Atonement to any who feel despair because of their circumstances.
The Arbor lists both face-to-face and telephone call-in family support groups available in our area, as well as Addiction Recovery Program meetings.
