Friends, Family and Allies

 

Friends, Family and Allies is a drop-in group for any students who are seeking support and dialouge about navigating, maintaining and better understanding their relationships with loved ones who have previously or currently struggle with substance misuse. Each meeting explores topics related to substance misuse, relationships to substances, and your well-being as it relates to the substance use of others in your life. 

This weekly drop-in meeting encourages open discussion, peer support, and developing further understanding of the impact of substance misuse on all individuals.

This is not a counseling group and is meant to be a space for any student to connect with other students who share similar experiences navigating relationships with family members and friends who may struggle with substances. 

We encourage students who are interested in individual support to either stop by the weekly meeting or reach out to Mackenzie at hogan.180@osu.edu
