LGBTQ+ Seeking Safety Group

Seeking Safety Group (LGBTQ+)

Seeking Safety welcomes adults (18+) from all gender and sexual identities and expressions, who have experienced trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or substance use disorder.

This group meets virtually only for the safety and convenience of our clients.

If you belong to the LGBTQ+ community, struggle with PTSD and substance use, then we are here to support you. The goal of this safe and inclusive group is to build new skills to help you cope with past trauma and/or substance use and thrive in your life.

Objectives include:
• Build skills in communication, stress management, self-care and relapse prevention
• Explore the relationship between trauma, substance use and other unsafe behaviors
• Develop social support
• Enhance commitment to recovery
