Comfort and Company

The road to recovery can be challenging for individuals and their loved ones. It often helps tremendously to reach out to others who are going through similar experiences. This is why we've created a number of support groups for our patients, outpatients, and their loved ones or caregivers. These groups not only offer emotional support, but important educational information as well.

All support groups are held on the Casa Colina campus in Pomona. Groups, times and locations are subject to change. Please be sure to call the numbers listed below for more information or to confirm the schedule prior to attendance.
