Narcotics Anonymous (N.A.)

Narcotics Anonymous was established in response to the success of Alcoholics Anonymous. NA provides support for those attempting to recover from drugs other than just alcohol. NA was officially founded in Los Angeles in 1953, and has spread to thousands of locations in 129 countries. The only requirement to become a member of NA is a desire to overcome your addiction. NA groups don’t make a distinction between any type of drug, including alcohol. They also recognize that polysubstance dependence is common. Any addict who wants to recover is welcome.

Meeting in person on Wednesday and Friday at Turning Point at 5:30pm. Temporarily suspended.

Marijuana Anonymous (M.A.)

Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction.

Overeaters Anonymous (O.A.)

Overeaters Anonymous is a fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope are recovering from compulsive overeating. They welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. There are no dues or fees for members; they are self-supporting through our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology or religious doctrine; they take no position on outside issues. Their primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive overeating and to carry the message of recovery to those who still suffer.

Al-Anon

Al‑Anon is a mutual support program for people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. By sharing common experiences and applying the Al-Anon principles, families and friends of alcoholics can bring positive changes to their individual situations, whether or not the alcoholic admits the existence of a drinking problem or seeks help.

Grief & Loss Peer Support Group

Grief is the normal and natural reaction to a loss of any kind including death, either recent or long ago, divorce or breakup of a romantic relationship, job loss, or one of the many other losses that a person can encounter during a lifetime. It could also be caused by an awareness that your life is not as happy or fulfilling as you want it to be. Join us as we support each other through grief and loss.

Writers For Recovery

Writers for Recovery helps people discover the power of the written word to process trauma, build self-esteem, and support healthy, sustained recovery. Their work has helped people across Vermont gain new perspectives on addiction and recovery. And it’s helped reduce the stigma of addiction by showing that people in recovery can make valuable contributions to their communities and lead rich, fulfilling lives. Addiction has devastated our communities, pushed our healthcare systems to the limit, and torn countless families apart. In such an environment, the need for recovery resources is more important than ever. Writers for Recovery’s goal as an organization is to expand their work of Writers for Recovery across New England so that they can provide more support to help individuals and communities win the battle against addiction.
