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.

Still Learning, Still Coping (Learn to Cope Group)

Entry Map

This is a special Learn To Cope group that, in partnership between Learn To Cope and SADOD, welcomes people who have lost a loved one to a substance-use-related cause and also currently have a loved one who is struggling with substance-use issues (or is abstinent from substances or is engaged in harm-reduction services, etc.). Meeting discussions and guest speakers are on the topics of grief and/or being engaged with someone struggling with substance use. This is a video only meeting (there is no in-person meeting).

  • Adults Only
Is the group dedicated solely to grief support after a substance-use death?
