Grief support for drug deaths



ELLSWORTH — A support group for those who have lost a loved one to a drug overdose is set to meet Wednesdays Feb. 20 through March 20 from 5-7 p.m. at the Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County house in Ellsworth. The group is free of charge but registration is required.

“Losing a loved one to drug overdose can make you feel alone and in pain,” organizers said. “Maybe you are thinking no one could possibly understand how you feel. If you have lost a loved one to drug overdose, you are not alone.”

Drug overdose deaths continued at nearly one per day throughout the state of Maine during 2018.

This group will provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space to receive support, to share difficult emotions and to build connections.
