ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS
Meetings are held every Thursday night, 7:30 pm Room 102

Alcoholics Anonymous ® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS

NA (for men) meets in the Trinity Room on Mondays at 7:30 pm.

Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit Fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. "NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We ... meet regularly to help each other stay clean. ... We are not interested in what or how much you used ... but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help." Membership is open to all drug addicts, regardless of the particular drug or combination of drugs used. When adapting AA's First Step, the word "addiction" was substituted for "alcohol," thus removing drug-specific language and reflecting the "disease concept" of addiction.

The Intensive Family Support Services (IFSS) program offers both support and psycho-educational groups to family members of individuals with a major mental illness. These groups meet on a weekly basis.  Family Support Groups meet at 7p Monday nights and Psycho-Education groups meet at 7p on Wednesday nights. IFSS services are free and open to family members that reside within Somerset County. These groups are a part of the IFSS mission to provide services to families with loved ones that are diagnosed with serious mental illness within Somerset County.

Support groups are a way to reduce isolation for families and it provides a safe and comfortable environment for families to process anything related to their loved one with mental illness.  Psycho-educational groups are a way for the IFSS team to educate families on topics related to mental illness.  Topics can range from navigating the mental health system to pharmacology.  Together these groups provide support, knowledge and skills to the families that can assist them with their overall sense of control and functioning.
