Families who are dealing with the problems of addiction are invited to a support group meeting from Oct. 16 from 6 to 7 p.m. in the second floor classroom at Rome Memorial Hospital.

The group meets the third Monday of each month and is free. Offered by the hospital’s recovery center, the support group provides:

  • An opportunity to discuss issues with others who are in the same situation.
  • Education.
  • Monthly support.
  • Development of communication skills that will work with those suffering from addiction.
  • Development and utilization of boundaries. 

Certified by the state Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, the Community Recovery Center, 264 W. Dominick St., offers alcohol and substance abuse treatment for adolescents and adults. Medications used to treat opioid addiction and alcohol dependence, such as Suboxone, Revia, naltrexone and Campral, are available through its new Medication-Assisted Treatment program.
