Drop-in Support Groups

If you are new to SASS groups, our drop-in groups are a great place to start! Come have conversations, discuss group topics, and find support from others who have had similar experiences. Due to the nature of the conversations that often happen during group, no late arrivals permitted. Our door locks about 5 minutes after group start time.

SASS services, including groups, are always FREE.

Groups are for folks 18 years and older and are held at SASS’s office unless otherwise stated in the description. We are located at 591 W 19th Ave., Eugene, OR, 97401 (Corner of 19th & Jefferson).

Please be aware: there are times when, due to circumstances beyond our control, a support group meeting may have to be canceled with short notice. On those occasions, we update our calendar and post notices to our social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram); you may also always call our business line (541-484-9791) to verify the schedule of our meetings.

*Children are not permitted to attend group with you*

Why are children are not allowed?

Research tells us having our children present while we are processing trauma may not be healthy for them. Also, their presence can interrupt the flow of group for folks in attendance. Because of this, we cannot allow children in group.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause!

We hope one day to have the funding to provide childcare for group participants, however at this time we do not have the resources to provide this service.

SASS Services are always FREE (but donations gladly accepted)!

Looking for a different type of group than what’s listed here?

Please contact us! We have other groups for various populations in the planning stages, and we’d like to know what folks are looking for.

In addition to groups, SASS also provides free, individual counseling services. For more information, visit our counseling page.
