Times are Changing for Self Help Programs

Posted by Soberman's Contributor on March 25, 2020 at 8:06 AM

At Soberman’s Estate, we provide outreach and information to our Alumni on a regular basis and feel it is pertinent to everyone in our recovery community to be privy to the information below. Although our program is not based on Self-help programs, we support our Alumni in finding any resources which are helpful to recovery.

In-person meetings are the lifeline of Self Help programs across the country and across the world. The ability to meet with other addicts and alcoholics has a grounding effect on everyone’s who attends. With the onset of COVID-19 many meetings are being temporarily cancelled and access to the many locations have ceased because of the instruction to increase social distancing.

Local Intergroup offices are trying to keep up with the changes which are occurring with meeting schedules and they are more than willing to assist you in finding in-person meetings which are currently active. In addition, “The Grapevine” which is usually a paid subscription for members can now be accessed online for free to support self-help members with reading personal recovery stories and listening to personal stories through the Grapevine YouTube channel online.
