Heartlinks of Family Hospice is offering a grief support group for parents who have lost a child due to drug addiction, siblings age 18 and older are also welcome. The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Heartlinks office located at 5100 W. Main St., in Belleville. Please consider attending this group if you have lost a child because of their addiction.
Parents are not only dealing with the heart shattering grief of losing a child, they are struggling with feelings of anger, guilt and failure. They are mourning two children: the one before addiction and the one after addiction took over.
Please call the Heartlinks office at 618-277-1800 for more information.
