7pm Every Tuesday at The Other Side
The Recovery Group at The Other Side is designed to provide a starting point for people struggling with addiction in their family. This group meets every Tuesday night at 7pm. Introduced in August 2015, The Recovery Group is open to anyone who has been affected by substance abuse or addiction. The attendants range from family, friends and loved ones of people suffering from addiction, to those who struggle with addiction themselves, as well as people in various stages of recovery; 2 weeks to 15 years sober. Everyone is welcome to share as much as they are comfortable with.
Often it can be difficult to find resources for addiction treatment and support. It is further challenging to meet people who understand it. This group allows for people to come start the process of finding and receiving help in a compassionate environment. A typically meeting at The Recovery Group involves addressing issues that each individual may be encountering at their stage of the recovery process. Solutions are offered based on the groups collective experience. The group acts as a first step to get people pointed to in the direction of the help and guidance they need.
