Caring Connections will be offering a grief support group for a loss due to drug overdose

Caring Connections is offering a new grief group.

Are you or is someone you know grieving the death of someone close due to drug overdose? Caring Connections is here to support you.  The death of a close friend or family member is a powerful and emotional experience. It can shatter life as one used to know it.

Three elements that seem to assist in processing grief following the death of a family member or friend are:

• Gathering relevant information from a knowledgeable professional
• Talking to others about your loss
• Listening to others who have had similar experiences.

Our bereavement support groups are led by health care professionals holding Masters or Doctoral Degrees in Social Work or Psychiatric Nursing or Licensed Professional Counseling.

Contact Caring Connection at 801-585-9522 for questions or to register. 

Funded by the University of Utah Educational Resource Development Council.
