Families Helping Families

Family Support Group2020-08-31T14:18:35-05:00

Our Family Support Group serves as a community for friends, loved ones, and family members of alcoholics to learn about alcoholism, understand how to support an alcoholic, and experience an improved quality of life, regardless of the alcoholic’s recovery.

Weekly Virtual Meeting

Wednesdays at 6:30pm (CDT)

We meet for one hour to help family members, loved ones, and friends to better understand their alcoholic’s disease and answer any questions. We invite you to join us.

Option 1: Via Zoom (the link will prompt you to download the free app)

Option 2: Dial-in via mobile phone or landline

Maggie’s Family Support Group gives families, loved ones, and friends tools to effectively support a loved one in the face of the confusion and chaos of alcoholism. Alcoholism is a disease that directly impacts at least 17 people around a single alcoholic – including loved ones, family members, friends, employers, coworkers, and the community.

If this is you, you are not alone. We are a group of volunteers who have struggled with our loved ones’ alcoholism and found hope and healing.

Open to All

This group is open to anyone who knows or loves an alcoholic, or an addict. Your loved one does not need to be a client of The Magdalen House, or in recovery.

Maggie’s Family Support Group is not an Al-Anon group and is not associated with Al-Anon Family Groups, Inc.

Resources

In addition to attending a Family Support Group meeting, we encourage you to start learning about the disease of alcoholism, and reach out to connect with us – whether you have questions or just need to talk to someone who has been where you are.
