Grief Recovery after Substance Related Loss

You are not alone.

In the United States, someone dies every 14 minutes from a drug overdose.  Families and friends who have lost a loved one due to an overdose or a substance-use disorder face many factors that can intensify grief.

If you have lost a loved one to overdose or substance-use disorder, are you experiencing any of the following?

  • Guilt and regret
  • Shame
  • Blame
  • Fear and anxiety
  • Stigma and isolation

In response to a growing need, Hospice of the Piedmont is now offering a monthly drop-in group for friends and family who have lost someone due to an overdose or a substance-use disorder.

Grief Recovery offers individuals a safe place to share their feelings about the death of their loved one, as well as connect with others who may be facing the same challenges.  Grief counselors address common responses to loss and the unique feelings that may surface after a loss due to overdose.

The group is held at Hospice of the Piedmont’s administration office, 1801 Westchester Drive, High Point. Participants must pre-register for this support session.

Meets the second Wednesday of the month
3:30-4:30 p.m.

Please call the Grief Counseling Center at 336.889.8446 for more information or to register.
