Counseling for grief and addiction
February 17, 2012 7:22 AM Subscribe
My coworker lost her son to addiction earlier this month, and she has a younger son who also struggles with addiction. She needs counseling for both grief and for dealing with children with addictions. She's not able to find a therapist right now so I told her I would help.

She lives on the South Shore in Massachusetts. I'm not sure how to help her besides listening to her and finding her a therapist. Right now her only plan is to talk to her priest, but it's very clear that she needs more help than that. Can you guys provide a few leads? Or offer some sort of road map for situations like this?
Also, is it out of bounds for me to call the therapist to set something up for her? I'm comfortable doing it but I don't know what the potential pitfalls might be.
