Grief Recovery After Substance Passing
GRASP was created to offer understanding, compassion, and support for those who have lost someone they love through addiction and overdose. Too many times we suffer not only the death of the person we love, but we become isolated in our grief. We feel, and too many times it is true, that no one understands our pain. But at GRASP, we do. We have suffered this same kind of loss and we have found the love and connection that only those who have lived this loss can give another. And while the pain of this loss will always be with us, we have found through GRASP that we don't have to walk the road that is our pain alone. We walk it together, hand in hand and heart to heart.
The Sun Will Rise Foundation provides support to the residents of Massachusetts towns for issues regarding substance use disorder. We help with education.
Our meetings are monthly, 18 and older, peer to peer, in person grief support for those in Massachusetts, New Hampshire & Rhode Island who have lost someone they love to substance use disorder, addiction and/or overdose. We welcome anyone who has experienced this type of loss.
Hope Floats Healing & Wellness Center offers a variety of groups and services for those grieving the loss of someone they love. www.hopefloatswellness.org/
Grief Weavers, LLC is a practice for individuals, couples, and families designed to facilitate the grief process by providing an environment in which bereaved persons can acknowledge, understand, and integrate or “weave” grief & loss into their lives.
We have a great children's book to help them with grief in a way they may be able to relate to and understand, the book is entitled Tuck Meets a Dragonfly and may be purchased by clicking on the lick below:
This delightfully illustrated and heartwarming book tells the story of a young turtle named Tuck who is struggling after the death of his Mom. Tuck's best friend, Padraic, embarks on a quest to find the answer to Tuck's questions "Is there a Turtle Heaven?" and "Is my Mom there?" Padraic seeks the help of Old Naughton, a turtle elder, who in turn asks the help of the dragonflies, Queen Emily and Katarina. Together the group brings the answers Tuck needs to begin his healing.
This uplifting story highlights ways to help grieving children. Suggestions are offered on using the story to broach the topics of grief and loss, "what happens next," and how love and friendship can heal the pain of grief.
