Coastal Hospice now offers grief support to family and friends of loved ones who have lost their lives due to an overdose death. This is a free program, focused on providing grief support and resources to the four counties we serve, whether or not you were supported by Coastal Hospice directly.
Alvin Harmon, SOBS Program Coordinator explained, “With this program, families from the four counties we serve will be able to receive specialized grief support for the loss of a loved one related to an overdose death. Alvin adds, “When a death of this nature happens in a family, it is often sudden, traumatic, and can be surrounded by stigma for survivors. Our goal is to provide them with a safe space to process these losses and offer them resources to help them develop coping skills to deal with grief.”
Coastal Hospice Bereavement Counselors are available to provide:
This program is made possible by The Maryland Opioid Operational Command Center in partnership with Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester Counties’ Health Departments.
