Ripple: Substance Abuse Support Group for Loved Ones

The Ripple Group

An educational and supportive group for loved ones (age 18+) of those experiencing substance abuse who are seeking an understanding of addictions and support. This group seeks to provide a safe space for loved ones to learn accurate and up-to-date information about addiction, recovery, treatment, and its effects, as well as provide support to each other and themselves in their roles as family and friends of those in active addiction or recovery.

Ripple Group meets as a 6 week running series.

Next Series:
Thursday evenings: July 14th – August 18th.
5:30 – 7:00 pm
MV Community Services Island Counseling Center
111 Edgartown Rd. Oak Bluffs, MA


Substance abuse affects more than the individual; it has a ripple effect on family, friends, and other loved ones. Gaining an understanding of addictions and speaking with others with similar experiences can help support your relationships and you in a difficult time.
