Southeastern Recovery Night

Southeastern Recovery Night is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem, and help others in their struggle with addiction. This Recovery Night is not A.A. or any other traditional 12- step program. It is however, our desire to recognize and affirm milestones of recovery in all 12-step programs, as well as addictions for which an appropriate 12-step group may not even exist.
