Find a group or meeting

Several formats of meetings and support groups are organized at our recovery community centers. We strive to offer something for all pathways of recovery.

Last year, nearly 30,000 people attended mutual-aid and support groups at our Recovery Community Centers.

Types of Meetings & Group Support

Often times referred to as mutual-aid, there are many types of group recovery supports. From 12-Step to harm reduction, support groups for families and spiritual groups. Find a group that supports your pathway of recovery. Not finding what you’re looking for? Start your own meeting at our community centers.

12-Step Meetings

12-Step meetings come in a variety of fellowships and formats. Some examples of common 12-step fellowships include Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Al-Anon and Nar-Anon, Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA), Gamblers Anonymous (GA), Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), among many others. 12-Step fellowships follow 12 steps of their fellowship and members often work directly with a sponsor, typically someone who has worked the 12 steps of their fellowship and has some time in recovery. Sponsors assist others in the process of working the 12 steps of the fellowship. Foundation for Recovery offers space available for 12 step groups to organize and host their meetings at our recovery community centers, operating independently of our programming.

Secular Recovery Meetings

There are many meetings and support groups that do not involve a higher power, god, or spirituality. These meetings are considered secular recovery groups. Examples of secular recovery groups include Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART) Recovery, Secular Organizations for Sobriety (SOS), LifeRing Secular Recovery, All Recovery Meetings, Harm Reduction Works, Moderation Management, and others. Our recovery community centers offer space for several secular recovery groups to meet on a regular basis and we're open to anyone interested in starting or moving their group to the recovery community centers.

Spiritual and Faith-Based

While many 12-Step groups feature tones of spirituality, some groups are centered around specific beliefs and faiths. Examples include Celebrate Recovery and Recovery Dharma. We welcome spiritual and faith-based recovery groups to meet at our recovery community centers. Through our statewide inter-faith initiative, we partner with faith-leaders and faith-based organizations to train on substance use recovery and harm reduction practices and various support group formats.

Other Support Groups

There are many other types of support groups, not exclusive to people with substance use disorders, but may be helpful for people to learn skills and meet others with similar life experiences. Examples of other support groups include the Community Reinforcement and Family Training, a 12-week program for people who have a loved one struggling with substances. Seeking Safety is another support group focused on helping people attain safety from trauma and substance use. Both of these examples are evidence-based groups and are offered at Foundation for Recovery.

Person-Directed Recovery

Person-centered recovery is directed, as much as possible by the person – including decisions about who should be included in the process.  The planning identifies just a few small, but meaningful, short-term changes that the individual can focus on helping to reduce some of the barriers or challenges moving forward.  Person centered care should be central to all recovery frameworks.
