RJ Garcia & Associates's Groups

Adult Children of Alcoholics/Addiction

This small unique group provides a safe environment for the means for arresting the emotional disease of family alcoholism/addiction. This is done by sharing information and experiences with one another and by applying to their own lives, in whole or in part, the Twelve Steps which constitute the recovery program upon which Alcoholics Anonymous is founded. The 16 Week group will be facilitated by RJ Garcia and will use the ACOA 12 Step Workbook as a guide. Please contact RJ for more information with date and time plus any cost per session.
