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.”

Listed below are the currently known divorce support groups in Oregon. The groups vary considerably in some of the following ways, inquire with each group to determine the one best for you based on these qualities:

  • Operates year-round (listed first in each section) or periodically
  • Religious leaning or non-denominational
  • Donation, cost per session, or cost for a series
  • Teaching by video, person or facilitated activities
  • Facilitated by a trained counselor or community volunteer
  • Number of meetings in a series and attendance expectations

People who search for “divorce support groups near me” are often disappointed to find no groups in their area or only a religious-leaning group such as DivorceCare. If you don’t see a satisfactory divorce support group near you, you might consider finding an online group, or finding a local therapist to help you process the divorce.
