Grief Recovery Method Support Group

Home of Hope Cancer Wellness Center: 1637 Plock Road, Dixon, IL
People say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you what you need to do to accomplish that.

The Grief Recovery Support Group not only makes that possible, but provides partnerships and guidance to ensure that it happens.

Myths about grief:
- Time heals all wounds
- Replace the loss
- Grieve alone
- Be strong for others
- Bury your feelings

Your feelings are normal and natural. The problem is that we have been socialized to believe that these feelings are abnormal and unnatural. Join us so we can help you move beyond death, divorce and other losses.
