What to Expect
Self Help DBSA support group meetings focus on mutual aid and strategies for living the fullest life possible. By sharing experiences, insights, and ideas, people get peer-to-peer support from others who have been in their shoes.
Acceptance and Safety: by fostering a supportive, trustworthy, respectful, nonjudgmental atmosphere, participants make the groups a safe place for each other. All those attending have the opportunity to share their struggles, triumphs, experiences, and suggestions.
Confidentiality: everything said at the group, stays in the group. Exceptions to this rule are made only when safety is a concern.
Peer Leadership: each support group meeting is facilitated by a peer. The facilitator(s) provides focus to the group, makes sure the principals are followed, and ensures the safety and well being of the participants.
