Locate a Support Group

TXLDA maintains links to support groups for Lyme patients in Texas. Although these groups are independent from TXLDA, we encourage patients to join one for more information on Lyme, co-infections, supplements, and doctors; for the support that comes from knowing that others have shared your symptoms and understand your problems; and to overcome the isolation that so often results from having Lyme.

These are the contacts for the current Lyme support groups in Texas. If you would like to start a support group in your area, go to our Contact Form, tell us what you would like to do, and we will put you in touch with our Support Group Liaison.
