ACT on Your Recovery

ACT on Your Recovery Group flier

This group offers you space to reflect on the function alcohol and/or drug use has in your life and receive support with your recovery goals, utilizing the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach. In this group, you will be invited to engage in mindfulness exercises, practice strategies for managing triggers, and develop more compassion for yourself in the process. You will have the opportunity to explore and define what matters to you (your values) and take a stand for these values in your life related to recovery.

Whether your goals are to reduce use, abstain, or you are curious about life in recovery, you are welcome here.

Weekly topics include: 

  • Willingness vs. Willpower
  • Setting a Course
  • Dealing with Obstacles
  • Responding to Relapse
  • Self-Compassion

Healthy Relationships

Healthy Relationships Group flier

Each week, in a provider-led group, we identify key components to a healthy romantic relationship, offer a space to reflect, and practice skills that support you in real-life situations. Whether you are entering a new relationship or strengthening a long-term partnership, this group is a place for you to share and receive encouragement with others who have similar goals.

Topics include:

  • Identifying and expressing emotions
  • Practicing positive conflict resolution
  • Establishing and maintaining boundaries
  • Exploring decision-making styles
  • Building a stronger connection
  • Loving your relationship

In addition to these two group series, the BHWC also offers drop-in groups on a variety of topics. For more information or to register, call 907-729-2492 or visit
