For New Yorkers Who Lost Loved Ones to Addiction

The sad reality is that most of us now grieve for someone special who lost the battle with addiction.  

“Unfortunately, not everyone wins their battle with addiction” says Dr. Dean Scher, CEO, Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange and Sullivan.

"We often find that the family members left behind have much to cope with, including grief, guilt, and anger.

“But there’s no need for loved ones to go it alone.”

This is why Catholic Charities is introducing a new FREE, OPEN-TO-THE-PUBLIC bereavement support group in Westchester County.

Tailored especially for those who lost loved ones to the disease of addiction it will meet:

  • Mondays, May 21, June 4, June 18, July 9 & Jul 23
  • Additional dates will be announced once the group is underway.
  • At 381 North Highland Ave., Ossining (St. Augustine’s Parish Hall, 2nd floor)
  • 7- 8:15 p.m.

For loved ones of individuals who passed from addiction, this is a safe place for sharing and support without judgment or stigma.

Facilitated by Gae Savino, LCSW, CT, it offers an opportunity to talk, share, support and be supported by other others who understand what you experienced.

For more information  or to RSVP contact Laura Brovich at 845-344-5565
