Health and Happiness

Tuesdays (12:30pm-2:00pm)

Health and Happiness is a group specifically designed for those struggling with chronic health conditions in the context of recovery from alcohol and substance use. Whatever the condition(s) may be, this group is designed specifically to address how we can find a way to navigate life with a chronic illness. Sessions include lecture, discussion, in-session exercises, and homework invitations that cover a wide range of topics, including coping skills; mindfulness; values; goals and the barriers that may prevent us from reaching them; how to become your own healthcare advocate; navigating relationships with chronic illness; and fostering hope through purpose and meaning. This group incorporates principles from several evidence-based treatments (include ACT and DBT) to specifically address what challenges and opportunities we have while living with chronic illnesses.
