Virtual Learning and Support Opportunities
Don’t let COVID-19 get you down! Many who are used to leaving home every day for work, social gatherings, religious services and school may be feeling anxious, isolated or bored.

Log in or call for insightful remote sessions providing emotional and family support and promoting personal development during this challenging time. Scroll to peruse our vast variety of no-cost offerings available from the comfort and safety of your own home through Zoom, Facebook and the phone.

Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous and Related Groups
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. They are people in recovery who meet regularly to help each other stay clean.
