When a loved one is struggling with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) it can be an overwhelming experience that affects relationships, health and even faith. Connecting with peers can make a difference.
LTM's monthly support group is open to family and friends of those struggling with misuse. We focus on sharing personal experiences and learning from each other in a compassionate and confidential environment. The meeting offers a way to enhance coping skills and self-care.
The support group is led by a licensed Clinical Social Worker.
The 2019 HERO and Will County Helps Community Forum is slated for Friday, May 3, 2019 at the Edward Hospital Athletic and Event Center in Romeoville, IL.

The eighth annual event will again be sponsored by HERO (Heroin Epidemic Relief Organization) and Will County HELPS (Heroin Education Leads to Preventative Solutions) as well as the Village of Romeoville and the Southwest Coalition.
