Grief Support Group Offered for Survivors who Lost Loved One to Substance Abuse
Ann and David Niday lost their son Michael to a substance abuse addiction in 2013 and are leading GRASP’s effo...rts locally.
“My hope is that this group will be a place of comfort, peace and encouragement,” said Ann Niday. “If you are struggling with this type of grief, please give this group a chance. Together, we can find the strength needed for this difficult journey.”
The first GRASP meeting is set for 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 24, at the Cabell County Public Library (455 9th St. in Huntington). Meetings will be scheduled every fourth Monday of the month after the initial meeting.
To RSVP and for more information, contact Ann Niday at 304-633-4220.
GRASP is a partner of the Cabell County Substance Abuse Prevention Partnership (CCSAPP), an initiative of United Way of the River Cities, which aims to prevent substance use and abuse among Cabell County youth and young adults.
“Dealing with the loss of someone we love is overwhelming,” said Michelle Perdue, CCSAPP project coordinator. “However, losing someone due to something that could have been preventable may feel bone crushing. You are dealing with a different set of emotions. GRASP is the kind of program that will be beneficial to people who are in this specific situation.”
