Oregon Divorce Support Groups: Benefits and Structure

Divorce support groups in Oregon (also known as divorce recovery groups) are the ideal way to heal the pain, grief and devastation that divorce leaves in its wake. While divorce counseling can help you move and grow through the unique dynamics of your heartache, divorce support groups also curb loneliness and isolation by providing tools for how to cope with divorce, in a community of others who are also in a divorce recovery process.

Divorce recovery groups do not provide legal or financial advice regarding your divorce. If you are trying to figure out where to start, read “How to get a Divorce in Oregon.”
