Grief Support Group Directory

This directory lists a variety of grief support groups in Massachusetts. It includes groups exclusively for people bereaved by a death from substance use, which are indicated by a purple heart icon. Most of the groups are facilitated by peer helpers (bereaved people who help others).

Due to COVID-19 most groups are currently not holding a physical meeting. Please Search below for groups offering virtual meetings.

Journey To Hope

Entry Map

Journey To Hope is a parent-only grief group, supporting parents who’ve lost a child to substance use. It was started by two moms in the Blackstone Valley area who met at a vigil held by the NOWA Peer Recovery Support Center in memory of those who lost the battle against SUD. Our goal is to offer one another peer support and understanding without judgment or bias. For our virtual meeting, you can find the link on the NOWA app,
