Have you ever heard of an All Recovery Support Group? I never had until just recently and I think the concept sounds pretty cool. These meetings are based on the philosophy that people from every addiction recovery pathway have much in common and can benefit from sharing together. These meetings are open to anyone regardless of path, as well as family members, and offer a place where people can share their addiction recovery experiences, with an emphasis on the hope and healing of recovery and how recovery has changed our lives, regardless of the substance or behavior that is at the root of our addiction.
Safe Harbor Recovery Center at 865 Islington Street in Portsmouth, NH is now offering three of these meetings per week at the following days and times:
- Tuesdays from 9 am – 10 am
- Wednesdays from 2 pm – 3 pm
- Fridays from 2 pm – 3 pm
An All Recovery Support Group meeting is not a 12-step meeting and has no affiliation with NA/AA. They welcome all who struggle with addiction, are affected by addiction, or support the recovery lifestyle. They ask that you respect the views and comments of others and that you refrain from the over use of profanity that may offend others. They would like for attendees to share on anything that enhances recovery and asks that those who share be mindful of the time so that others can share as well. These groups aren’t for people to come and focus on one particular “path” but is a way for people in all types of recovery to come together and learn from each other.
If you are available and in the Portsmouth area around these times, come into Safe Harbor Recovery Center and check it out. Everyone who supports the recovery lifestyle is welcome to attend this free group support meetings!
