Support Groups

Obsessive Compulsive Support Group

FUMC's OCD Support Group, which met for more than 20 years, has been assimilated into the new support group at Rogers Memorial Hospital.  Rogers Memorial Hospital offers support groups for individuals living with OCD, as well as for parents and caregivers of those struggling with the disorder.  These support groups provide on-going education and a safe place to share tips, ideas and challenges.  In weekly or bi-weekly sessions, participants connect with others to sharpen the skills required to live with uncertainty, remain focused on goals and share achievements.  The groups meet at:

Silver Lake Outpatient Center (Media Room)
1205 Corporate Center Dr
Oconomowoc WI  53066  

For more information, contact Marisol Brost, OCD/Anxiety Support Group Specialist at 262-646-6257 or marisol.brost@rogershospital.org.

 

AA (Alcoholics Anonymous)

Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

AA meets at FUMC on the following days. These meetings are closed to the public but open to alcoholics. Signs are posted at eThe ach entry with the assigned room number for each meeting. Mondays at 9:30 a.m. (closed discussion), Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. (closed big book/12 & 12 study), Wednesdays at 6 p.m. (closed women’s meeting), Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. (closed discussion).

Al-Anon

The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery. Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help friends and families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families and friends of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic. Whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not, Al-Anon offers hope and recovery to all people affected by the alcoholism of a loved one or friend.

Our program of recovery is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based on the Twelve Steps, the Twelve Traditions and the Twelve Concepts of Service. Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization or institution; does not engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions. Al-Anon meets at FUMC on Saturdays at 10 a.
