Substance Loss – Loss of Spouse
When you are new to your loss, the emotions and grief may feel overwhelming. You may wonder if what you are experiencing is normal. You may feel as if you are living in a surreal world with no idea of what to expect next. You have a desire to sort through the chaos and confusion that comes with a sudden loss. Our “Understanding your Loss” groups will help you understand the grieving process, acknowledge the realities of your loss, understanding and accepting your pain, and remembering your love one. This group will help you shift from being in shock, denial, chaos, and confusion to a place where you can begin to feel that hope is possible.
If you have lost someone you love to suicide you are most likely experiencing the complicated grief that surrounds this loss. We experience feelings of shame, stigma, guilt, anger, blame, shock, and isolation – these are all common feelings, yet they are so difficult to understand.
You will be part of a small group that includes other suicide loss survivors who are working through a complicated set of emotions. Our groups provide a safe, intimate place to talk about your feelings of loss and to remember the one who passed.
