Course Description

Loss of a loved one, including pets, friend, job, marriage, moving

and facing a future of unknown possibilities with newly learned
tools to forge the road ahead. Grief is experienced when the loss is
a friend named alcohol or drugs. The friend that can numb feelings
and erase shame. Using drugs and alcohol can create many loses in
one’s life, work, friends, home, family, self-esteem, possessions,
even life itself.
