RECOVERY MEETINGS & SUPPORT

 

Recovery is a process that continues long after treatment ends. A network of peer support is an essential resource for those who are trying to maintain sobriety and rebuild a life that has been damaged by addiction. Find a group and a program that feels comfortable and meets the needs of your recovery. All programs are free and open to the public on a walk-in basis unless otherwise noted. This information was up to date as of August 2018 but please confirm meetings times and locations before attending as schedules may be subject to change.
