Group Demographic

Losing a sibling to an overdose or suicide has unique challenges, which are often overlooked by family, friends, and society at large. This 10-week group is for people in their 20s and 30s who have lost a sibling (half, step, full, etc.) to a drug overdose or suicide. The group aims to create a space for sibling survivors to support each other and find meaning in life after loss.

Group Type

This group is closed, which means that new members may join only at specific times or under certain circumstances.


*There are 8 spots available on a first-come, first-served basis.  A 45-minute initial intake is the first step ($65). Please contact Rebecca Gerstein, LCSW at [email protected] to schedule an intake appointment.
