Virtual Support Group Recommendations:

* During virtual support groups plan to be alone or utilize headphones to protect the anonymity of others and private conversations.

* Reduce noise around you and place your microphone on mute if you're not sharing or talking. Also pay attention to your background to not be distracting to other meeting attendees. 

* Minimize distractions by not multitasking during the meetings. Try and give your full attention to the support group experience. 

* Make sure to continue attending the "meeting before the meeting" and staying after the allotted time. This remains the best time to strengthen relationships with your fellow community members. 

* An audio and visual presence is encouraged if possible. 

*As going around the circle to determine who shares next is not always feasible "popcorn" style and "pass the stick" style meetings are encouraged.

Refuge Recovery

Refuge Recovery is grounded in the belief that Buddhist principles and practices create a strong foundation for the addiction recovery process.  Wisdom and compassion enable those struggling with any form of addiction to become more mindful of their mental processes while also developing a deep understanding of the suffering that addiction has created and compassion for their own path.

SMART Family and Friends

“SMART Recovery Family & Friends” is a support group designed to provide concerned significant others the tools they need to effectively support their loved one, without supporting the addictive behavior. “SMART Recovery Family & Friends” will include tools for emotional self-management, positive communication, boundary setting, changing enabling behaviors, dealing with trust issues, and more.

Fridays at 10am

 

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.

 Wednesdays at 5 pm
