Meetings are the backbone of the ASCA recovery program.

The most important thing to know about meetings is that safety is the highest priority. Meetings are very structured and conducted by two trained co-facilitators who follow a set script. Although every attendee is invited to share, no one is pressured to do so. Regardless, many often hear things they find helpful. We encourage you to give an ASCA meeting a try. If you have any questions, please visit about and feel free to contact us.
