Substance Use Recovery Group

From a Harm Reduction and Mindfulness Framework

Overview

This group is open to adults age 21+ who need support around their substance use. Group members will be supported in setting both short-term and long-term goals for themselves that range anywhere from reducing use to remaining sober from some or all substances. 

We currently offer two groups per week - one that meets virtually on Mondays at 7:00pm-8:00pm and another group that meets in-person at our Wicker Park Office on Tuesdays from 6:15pm-7:15pm.

Purpose and Goals of this group

Hi, My name is Zoe! The purpose of this group is to create a space that allows people to show up authentically and honestly discuss their substance use. Members of similar groups I have facilitated have shared that in many sobriety-only substance use groups, they are unable to share honestly which creates more shame and stigma around use. This group allows for individualized goal setting that meets clients where they are at to reduce the harm in their lives. The use of mindfulness helps group members to not only ground themselves in the space, but to take home additional coping skills.

I hope members gain a sense of community, knowledge of harm reduction, additional coping skills, and the achievement of their goals on their substance use & healing journeys.

I work with adults from all walks of life. I specialize in working with clients who face systemic harm and societal stigma including but not limited to; LBGTQ and TGNC folks, women, and people from other marginalized communities. I am affirming of all genders & sexualities, careers, reproductive choices, kinks, and alternative relationship structures. I also work with people striving to change their interpersonal relationship dynamics. I am trained in using a harm reduction framework to work with folks who want to change their relationship with substance use.

Additionally, I have a background in the arts and have worked with clients on the unique stressors of being an artist or in other non-traditional professions.
