This hour long lunch time group is a learning group using the book Eight Step Recovery. We will meditate for 20 minutes, read for 5-10 minutes and share for 30 minutes. All are welcome, not just those with a drug or alcohol related addiction. Addiction is defined as any behavior, substance-related or not, that brings temporary pleasure or relief, a behavior one craves but is unable to stop despite negative consequences. We look forward to growing our group to be a mainstay source of support on the Eastside with expansion to another group in the evening.
