Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance Use will be offering a new open-ended, ongoing educational series called Balanced Relationships and Recovery, starting Nov. 7.

Educational series on balanced relationships upcoming in Courtenay

What is a balanced relationship?

Are you affected by someone else’s substance abuse?

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 will be offering a new open-ended, ongoing educational series called Balanced Relationships and Recovery, starting Nov. 7.

Topics include:

Week 1. The helping Trap

Week 2. How people change

Week 3. How do “helpers” recover

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.

Group meets every Tuesday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m at Public Health, Cedar Room, 961 England Avenue, Courtenay. .

No pre-registration is required.

For more information, call (250) 331 – 8642.
