Support Groups


Support – with kindness, care, compassion and empathy. You are not alone.

Learn to Cope is a support group for parents and family members dealing with a loved one addicted to heroin, Oxycontin and other drugs. It began in 2004 when its founder needed a place to go to get support for her family.  Today her son is alive and well, so there is hope.

Learn to Cope is a support group but also plans and facilitates local forums with real world experience to help educate the public on this issue.  If you are grappling with the problem of addiction due to a family member, friend, or loved one, please click below to learn more about what you can do to cope and educate yourself.
