This group is for people wanting to be involved in creating a community around recovery in Portland, Oregon. We're striving to create an alternative model to 12-step programs, SMART recovery, Refuge Recovery, and more. What makes this project unique? We want to start a group which puts the focus on recovery for EVERYONE, whether or not you identify as having mental health or addiction issues. There will be classes and discussion focused on practical coping skills, grounding and mindfulness practices, self care, how to set boundaries, self-empowerment-- really, things that everyone could stand to learn or brush up on.
All of this is being presented as an ongoing experiment, and subject to change. We want to empower others to start similar groups where they are and adapt them to that particular community's needs. Join the conversation!
