Al - Anon Hawthorne

Do you worry about how much someone in your family consumes alcohol? Have you been offended or embarrassed by the behavior of a family member or friend who drinks? Do you think there is no one who understands your problems?

We invite you to participate in Al-Anon meetings, where the members are people just like you who are concerned about a family or friend's drinking problem.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Is an international mutual aid fellowship with the stated purpose of enabling its members to "stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety." AA is self-supporting and apolitical. Its only membership requirement is a desire to stop drinking. For information please call the Parish Center or email amartinez@stjoseph-haw.org

CHAT

Is a program for those that feel indecisive at making decisions and see it as a very difficult task.  If you have a fear of being wrong. If you seek the opinion and constant approval of others. If you feel hopeless with no control over problems. If, when you get angry your body feels stiff, your breathing and heart rate accelerates. If you connect with any of these points then CHAT is for you. CHAT is a place where we will learn positive emotional tools to face the challenges of life.

Support Group

This program is only offered in Spanish, you'd wish to have this in English please email Amanda at amartinez@stjoseph-haw.org

Do you have problems with your family, friends that cause you concern, anxiety, depression? Are you in a relationship of abuse and domestic violence? Do you feel like you can't get over the loss of a loved one? Do you feel little accepted, loved and understood?
Do you have any health problems due to not being able to cope with stress? Come share with people experiencing the same difficulties, concerns, and discover alternatives on how to cope and find emotional relief.
