Where we live: Amherst


The Family and Loved Ones Support and Educational Group will meet at 6:45 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at Amherst Town Court, 400 John James Audubon Parkway.

The fledgling program provides educational and emotional support to loved ones of those dealing with substance abuse issues. Topics include: understanding codependency and enabling behaviors; making sense of drug court sanctions; finding success in the treatment system and how addiction impacts family dynamics.

The program is sponsored by the Amherst Drug Court and Timothy Logsdon, owner of Inner Quest Counseling Services. It is free and open to the general public. The group meets the fourth Thursday of every month.
