Community GED student who is looking for a support group

by Cindy
(Raleigh, NC)

I am the Program Manager of Adult Education in a large homeless facility in Raleigh, NC. I have a community GED student who is looking for a support group to attend. Her live-in boyfriend is addicted to Crack cocaine and she feels all alone and depressed.

Is there a support group in the Raleigh area where she might find refuge and fellowship?

I have two groups that I would recommend
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Cindy,

Living with a Cocaine Addict is a HUGE challenge, but there is a lot of support available for her in Raleigh.

The two types of groups I would recommend are:

- Celebrate Recovery (CR), which is a Christian Group that offers wonderful support for addicts, their families and loved ones.

- Al-anon, which supports the families and loved ones of addicts.

I would recommend that she try to visit three or four different meetings until she finds one that she feels comfortable with and that is supportive of her.

Then she should start working the 12 step program so that she can learn as much as possible about Cocaine Addiction. The more she understands about it, the more likely she will be able to help her friend to recover.

Here are some local CR meetings that she could could try:
