Accessing Support

Start accessing the support you need right away

Start accessing support by joining a free weekly group for women seeking help with substance use and/or gambling concerns. The group is a great way to get started, get connected, and learn about next steps. We’ll talk about coping, staying safe, and explore whether you’re ready to start making changes. There is no waiting list, and no need to register or make an appointment. You can come as often as you like, although we recommend participating regularly.
