Our Meetings

What do our meetings look like? At Grand Park Way 99, our priority is a comfort. We think that no one can feel safe to share if they are uneasy. When members enter a meeting, they are met with food (scones, chips, veggies, etc.) and drink (coffee, tea, water) as well as a small circle of comfortable chairs. The members can help themselves to refreshment and converse with others before the meeting.
Each meeting has a leader who is a certified employee with the Center. The leader will notify the members when it is time to start, and everyone will take a seat. Our meetings always begin with the introduction of all the members: they will state their name, their addiction, and how the past week has gone. This can be a time to share any difficulties, fears, or impulses a member may have. We encourage everyone to be as honest as possible. Healing cannot take place until we admit to ourselves and others that we have a problem.
After the sharing is done, the leader will introduce one of the steps in our 12-step program. We use the traditional curriculum utilized by most NA Centers, focusing on acknowledging a higher power and making amends to those harmed by our addictions. Our meetings are generally structured to focus on one step for 2-3 weeks. During the meeting, the leader will give members time to journal their responses to the step. They can also share any reactions or concerns with the group in the following group discussion.
Each of our meetings ends with a re-dedication to living without addiction, and the recitation of our rules and mantras. We believe that everyone must make a new commitment every day to living a life free of substance abuse.
There is free time after the group if members wish to stay and talk, but all are released when the leader if finished.
