Monday’s:

Peer Support: Open discussion; Peers are free to talk about anything they’re experiencing or feeling.

Meditation: We offer an array of different types of meditations. Some meditation meetings will also discuss them afterward.

Rockin’ Recovery: A rockin’ blend of music and discussion. We play feeling-provoking music then share our thoughts on each song.

Stress Relief: A deep dive into life’s stressors and how to successfully manage them. We also look at the physical, mental, and emotional toll stress can cause.

Ripping off the Labels: Most of us have been diagnosed or LABELED at some point throughout our lives; In this group we talk about those many labels and break down any stigma or concern attached to them.

DRA (Dual Recovery Anonymous): A wonderful 12 step fellowship that gives us the opportunity to discuss both our addictions and our mental health

Open Discussion: Similar to Peer Support; If there are not specific things peers would like to discuss, the group facilitator will choose various topics

Compulsive Behaviors: Any action or thought that we partake in persistently and repetitively can cause us some, or great, distress. Here we discuss those things and share what has helped us.

Mind & Body Wellness: Want to improve your overall wellness? Join us as we discuss all the amazing things we can do to improve our minds & bodies.

Grief & Loss: The hole that is left in our hearts when we lose someone we love is excruciating. And although nothing will bring them back, we’ve found that it does help to keep them alive in our thoughts and minds together!

Woman’s Table Talk: Closed group for women to discuss women things! Shh! Don’t tell the men! 😊

Talking Trauma: Whether you’ve been labeled w/ PTSD or not, we all have faced traumatic events in our lives. Here we share our traumas comfortably, we support each other, and we listen to the journey’s others have taken to move towards wellness.
