New Evening Support Group

Location: Lyme Connection Offices, Town Hall Annex, 66 Prospect St., Ridgefield
Description: New evening support group for patients suffering from Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.Facilitated by Lisa Oren, MSW, LCSW.

This is an open format support group. The goal is to generate supportive, positive energy between members, share information and experiences, and ask questions. There may be occasions that are topic focused with the theme coming from members' suggestions. The last approximately 15-30 minutes of the group will be available for small group and personal conversations.

Special topics, guest speakers and holiday/ weather cancellations are posted on our website. We follow the Ridgefield school schedule during inclement weather. Groups are always cancelled when school and/or after school activities are cancelled.

This new evening support group is in addition to the one already scheduled on the second Thursday of each month.
