Young Adults Group

JACS Young Adult Group

The Young Adults Group is for those ages 19 to 25 who are interested in receiving support around their substance use/abuse or for other addiction related concerns. “Meet the client where they’re at” is the motto for this support group. Those seeking abstinence or harm reduction are both welcome.

Each week begins with a “check-in” with how their week has been going; covering positives, concerns, or “issues” that they would like to address. This is followed by feedback from other participants based on personal experiences and subjective suggestions. Afterward, the group facilitator will offer clinical/therapeutic feedback.

Common themes that arise from group sharing will lead to a facilitated discussion on a variety of topics, therefore, always relevant to those present. Topics discussed include relapse prevention, coping with craving, entering recovery/different methods to recovery, working on relationships, boundaries, emotional regulation, building self-esteem and self-confidence, and addressing mental health concerns.
Pizza and pop are served.
Thursday’s 7:30pm – 9:00pm

Location: JACS Toronto – 858 Sheppard Avenue W  (in the plaza at on the northeast corner of Sheppard & Wilmington)

Facilitated by Marlee Harendorf-Gold
