First Responders Support Group

Supporting Our First Responders

First Responders Support Group

This group is a weekly supplemental group for First Responders in recovery.

The purpose of this group is to offer support in overcoming shame and other emotional problems and difficulties unique to the First Responders work force.  This includes support for high-risk situations and traumatic events, as well as dealing with the effects of exposure to drugs and alcohol in the work place.

In this group we hold each other accountable, and to maintain a safe environment we apply the same professional ethics that First Responders are familiar with in order to create a program that is anonymous and confidential.

Participants in this group are encouraged to outline their current recovery activities, provide a brief self-evaluation of the quality of their recovery, and are able to request group feedback time if they need help in dealing with a problem.

If you would like to participate in this group please email
or call 604-219-7692.

The First Responders Support Group runs every Wednesday from 3:00PM to 4:30PM at the Together We Can offices located at 2831 Kingsway, Vancouver BC.
