What we're about

This is a unique support group for people who wish to create healthier relationships, to heal from and/or let go of a toxic or unhealthy relationship. We welcome people at all steps of their journey – whether they been to a support group, meet-up, counseling or a newcomer!

What is a toxic or unhealthy relationship?

These can be relationships you have in love, friendship, family, work, or elsewhere that are weighing you down in some capacity. You may feel stuck, misunderstood, frustrated, or not happy with where you are in your relationship.

Some questions members struggle with may include--

Do you find yourself attracting people who are unavailable, incapable of treating you with the love and respect you deserve?

Do you have difficulties making healthy choices?

Would you like to view your relationships in a new and different perspective?

This support group offers more than just "talk". Members will experience meditation, honest-open sharing, role-playing, educational readings and structured exercises within a safe, confidential and supportive environment.

Join us for a transformative experience while connecting with other members struggling with similar issues on a journey to creating fulfilling relationships, healing and/or letting go of unhealthy ones.

Group will meet 1x month on the first Sunday of the month
7:15 PM - 8:30 PM
at the Nanuet Pavilion Building

25 Smith Street

Nanuet, NY 10954

This group is facilitated by a Certified Addiction Recovery Coach, Certified Addiction Peer Advocate, Life Skills Coach and Independent Health Coach. Debbie brings her personal experiences of navigating through and triumphing over the difficulties of toxic relationships.

BBQ Smokehouse Restaurant and Live Band

Bailey's Smokehouse

Let's meet at Bailey's Smokehouse in Blauvelt, NY, near NJ border. This popular destination is, right off Route 303. It is hands-down the best BBQ in the area and some of the best BBQ East of the Mississippi. The smoking process starts with their own BBQ spice marinated overnight. Then they are slow smoked for up to 12 hours using local hard woods until tender, moist, and full of flavor. This unique cooking process creates what’s known as a “Smoke Ring” (sign of outstanding authentic BBQ) which develops along the outside of the meat and around the bones in our products. After dinner, Kickin Nash will be performing live country music. Come join us for the best BBQ in town and the best country music!
