MSTH Healing Hearts Peer Support Group After a Loss from Substance Use Related Causes

While some in the Moms Stop The Harm (MSTH)  network have a family member still seeking recovery or are in recovery, most also mourn one or more loved ones. Healing Hearts arose from the need to deal with our own grief and offer mutual support to one another, as other grief support groups were either not available or did not feel right for our experience. 

Healing Hearts are peer lead groups that meet on a regular basis (most once per months), where we can share our pain with others who have the same experience without stigma and without blame.  You do not have to be a member of MSTH to attend a Healing Hearts peer support group and you do not have to be active in advocacy to join. 

If you are looking for support, all active Healing Hearts groups are listed under Local Groups. 

If you are interested in starting a local MSTH Healing Hearts peer support group or would like more information, contact Healing Hearts at

Healing Hearts is a Canadian organization. In some Canadian cities and in the US grief support is also available through Grief Recovery After Substance Passing GRASP
