Vermont CARES is a harm reduction organization that provides Syringe Service Programs, HIV/HCV testing, safer sex supplies and educational training across Vermont.  Harm Reduction simply means that we are helping people to reduce the potential harms that may be associated with drug use and sexual activity. We are enabling people to live safer, longer, healthier lives by preventing HIV infection, overdose deaths, viral hepatitis and helping people get connected to treatment.  Our programs aim to educate, engage and bring evidence-based interventions to those who seek our services through compassionate care and guidance. 

What about the national and global recovery community online?

How about something else?

In The Rooms is a free online recovery tool that offers 130 weekly online meetings for those recovering from addiction and related issues. We embrace multiple pathways to recovery, including all 12 Step, Non-12 Step, Wellness and Mental Health modalities.

SMART focuses on learning coping skills that work well short- and long-term. SMART Recovery uses evidence-based methods, including cognitive-behavioral, non-confrontational motivational enhancement, and other methods. Meetings focus on the application of these methods.

Recovery Dharma uses Buddhist practice and principles to heal the suffering caused by all types of addiction. It is an international community of people who host and participate in weekly meetings to support our sobriety and wellbeing through meditation, self-inquiry, and sharing.

Refuge Recovery is grounded in the belief that Buddhist principles and practices create a strong foundation for a path to freedom from addiction. This program is an approach to recovery that understands: All individuals have the power and potential to free themselves from the suffering that is caused by addiction.

LifeRing Secular Recovery is an organization of people who share practical experiences and sobriety support. There are as many ways to live free of drugs and alcohol as there are stories of successful sober people. Many LifeRing members attend other kinds of meetings or recovery programs, and we honor those decisions. Many people find that LifeRing’s emphasis on the positive, practical present-day can turn anger and despair into hope and resolve.

Offering all recovery meetings daily. All recovery meetings are non-denominational, agnostic to any specific recovery pathway, and are open to anyone. Our meetings include one daily family and loved one recovery support meeting, a weekly LGBTQ+, and Women’s Only meeting

Women For Sobriety (WFS) is both an organization and a self-help program (also called the New Life Program) for women with Substance Use Disorders. It was the first national self-help program for addiction recovery developed to address the unique needs of women. Based upon the thirteen Acceptance Statements, the New Life Program is one of positivity that encourages emotional and spiritual growth. 

The Phoenix’s mission is to build sober active community that fuels resilience and harnesses the transformational power of connection so that together we rise, recover and live. As we are committed to still deliver opportunities for Social Connection during this challenging time, we have introduced daily live-streamed, virtual programming for Crossfit, Yoga, and Meditation along with other online social events.
