Nurse Support Group
A vital link in the recovery process is a strong on-going treatment program. One of the methods that can be employed to meet this need is Nurse Support Groups. Nurse Support groups:
- Share experience and provide strength, hope and support in addressing issues related to the process of recovery from the disease of substance use disorders.
- Provide support regarding professional issues, including re-entry into the workplace.
Nurse Support Group Locations
Nurse support groups meet in many locations throughout California. To find the group nearest to you, please refer to the Nurse Support Group list.
