An All Recovery Meeting is a meeting any person in recovery, in addition to allies of those in recovery, can attend and find support at. This is a space where everyone, no matter what pathway, can come and lean on one another for support, empowerment, and compassion.
Like all YPR chapter events, All-Recovery Meetings are free and open to the public. We believe there are many pathways to recovery and there is no single best way to find and sustain an individual’s long-term recovery. In order to support and cultivate a thriving community of people in recovery and their allies, it’s important to bring individuals from different pathways together to discuss recovery broadly and break down the barriers and misperceptions that may exist between pathways.
These meetings are settings where individuals from 12-step, faith-based, medication-supported recovery, responsible use, harm reduction, SMART recovery, etc. can come together to foster a deeper sense of inclusion.
Participants sign up to chair the meeting on a subject of their choosing. Chair usually lasts about 20 minutes, then the meeting is opened to discussion. At the end of the meeting we go around and everyone shares something they are grateful for as well as an affirmation.
