LifeRing is a secular, abstinence based recovery support group that believes you DO have the power to overcome your addiction. Steps, and Higher Powers and Sponsors – those work for some people very well. Our approach is different. We think YOU are the best person to design YOUR OWN program – you know what’s needed in your life and what has to be abandoned. You know what triggers cravings and what provides healthy and strengthening pleasure. You know the path you want to be on and you are the only person who can figure out how best to get there. LifeRing provides the safe and supportive contact with others that enables that process to succeed. Life Ring can be and is encouraged to be used in conjunction with other support groups such as AA, Women for Sobriety and the SMART program.
