As the number of people affected by drug addiction grows, more and more families are left to grieve deaths from opioid overdose.
Lourdes Hospital will be offering a support group for children and a separate support group for adults who are grieving an opioid-related death.
The adult and child support groups will take place in separate rooms. The groups are led by certified social workers and will help address the unique challenges and emotions associated with this type of loss and grief.
The support groups take place on Thursdays from 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM at Lourdes Hospice, 4102 Old Vestal Road, Vestal and continue each Thursday for 6 weeks.
Registration is required. Please call 607-584-9160 for upcoming dates and to register.
