Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance Use offering educational series addressing relationships and recovery

One of the qualities of the “helper” is the ability to totally focus on someone else, to the exclusion of their own needs. This might lead to difficulty when helping becomes too much of a good thing.

Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance Use is offering an open-ended, ongoing educational series called “Balanced Relationships and Recovery.”

Topics include:

Week 1: The Helping Trap

Week 2: How People Change

Week 3: Helping Someone in Substance Use Recovery

Week 4: Boundaries

Week 5: Anger

Week 2 and 3 will have an emphasis on understanding another’s substance use and recovery, and how to maintain balance.

The group meets every Tuesday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance Use, 101-1742 Cliffe Ave., Courtenay. Please use the entrance at the back of the building.

No pre-registration is required. Please call the office for current schedule. For more information, call 250-331–8642.
