Family and friends supporting a person in recovery also need support. We have added a four-week family support group session on Tuesdays from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. at our Des Moines location at 4908 Franklin Avenue. This is a four-week rolling program, but new participants can start at any time. There is no charge for this family group session, but we will ask you to sign in and participants may provide a free will donation.
