Meetings at the Recovery Resource Center

What recovery meetings are held at the RRC (Recovery Resource Center)?

Looking for recovery meetings can be overwhelming at times, especially in early recovery. There’s no “one size fits all” and there are so many different types. Some recovery meetings are faith based while some focus on abstinence. So how doesn’t a person narrow down which one(s) to try? Here is a list that outlines some that are held at the RRC.

12 Step Meetings

As Bill Sees It (Alcoholics Anonymous)

This is an open meeting that is available to anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous’ program of recovery from alcohol use disorder (alcoholism). Typically a speaker will read aloud from the book As Bill Sees It and a discussion takes place around the room.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA)

Narcotics Anonymous uses a 12-step model developed for people with a variety of substance use disorders.

Heroin Anonymous (HA)

This recovery meeting is similar to the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. HA is a fellowship of people whose drug of choice was/is heroin and meet to help each other practice complete abstinence from all drugs and alcohol.

Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA)

Dual Recovery Anonymous is an independent, nonprofessional, Twelve Step, self-help meeting for people with a dual diagnosis. Individuals that attend DRA are chemically dependent and also affected by an emotional or psychiatric illness. The DRA approach to dual recovery focuses on a simple set of ideas and steps and is suggestions for recovery rather than a set of rules. They encourage individuals to find their own personal recovery, the one that is most meaningful. They are meant to support those who wish to bring a spiritual dimension to our dual recovery. The DRA program is worked on a day-by-day basis.

Co-Dependents Anonymous (CoDA)

Co-Dependents Anonymous is a twelve-step program for people who share a common desire to develop functional and healthy relationships.


A positive, healthy support group that talks about and process the stress due to media coverage, code-switching, trauma and daily experiences of people of color. Members can share personal stories and get validation and resources to support their mental health. Although this group is led by a person of color, it is an open group including allies.

SMART Recovery

SMART stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. It’s a transformative method of moving from addictive substances and negative behaviors to a life of positive self-regard and willingness to change. During the support meetings, participants design and implement their own recovery plan to create a more balanced, purposeful, fulfilling, and meaningful life.

Recovery is a personal journey and there is no perfect solution for everyone. While recovery meetings help many, it may not fit some and that is completely ok. Others find help and solace in their religious and spiritual beliefs while some choose to walk on a path with their self.

There may also be a time individuals need the guidance of a professional substance use or mental health facility. That is where Lifeline Connections can help.
