Steps, Higher Powers and Sponsors – those work for some people very well. LifeRing's approach is different.
We think YOU are the best person to design your Own Personal Recovery Program – you know what’s needed in your life and what has to be abandoned. You know your triggers, and 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 safe and supportive contact with others in recovery that enables that process to succeed.
