Siblings Impacted by Addiction:
An educational group for adults with a sibling who has an addiction

Do you love a sibling who suffers from addiction? Siblings Impacted by Addiction is an educational group that explores how to begin the healing process. Once addiction enters your family and latches onto a sibling, how do you relearn your role? How do you build boundaries?

The Shoutout™ Group for Siblings Impacted by Addiction helps adults (18 years old and older) of siblings with substance use disorder heal. Together we will discuss the pressure and range of emotions- shame, hostility, disappointment- you feel and help you navigate those feelings in a healthy way.

Shoutout™ is an easy-to-use digital health platform that connects you to a world of support and education. Our Masters Level therapists, coaches, educators, and supportive peers will help with boundaries, communication, and so much more.

With the Shoutout™ Siblings Impacted by Addiction Educational Group, you will:

Create healthy boundaries for yourself
Balance your relationship with your sibling and parents
Understand your role as a sibling and support your loved one’s recovery
Maintain hope and optimism
Engage in meaningful interactions with your family by creating healthy connections

Keep the lines of communication open by exploring different communication styles and tools to reconcile differences
Connect with others who are dealing with similar experiences
