Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many, if not all, of the recovery programs listed here have made changes to address questions and concerns pertaining to public health in the current crisis. Please visit the recovery program’s respective COVID-19 page to see how fellowship is being fostered for each respective community. As always, should you decide to attend a meeting in-person, be aware of the risks of doing so and take the appropriate measures to lessen your risk of contracting the virus. Wear a mask, practice social distancing, and wash your wands. When possible, it may be best to stay home and connect to a meeting virtually. Stay safe.
