New Meeting in Bloomfield Hills, MI!

We are pleased to announce a new meeting will be starting in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan – our first in the Detroit area – this Saturday, September 9th.

The meeting’s convenor, Alan, took it upon himself to start this meeting on his own, first by securing a meeting space at the gracious Birmingham Unitarian Church and then contacting us to let us know so he would have all of his “t’s” crossed and his “i’s” dotted. We sent him our New Meeting Starter Kit, and kaboom! New meeting started. The rest, we hope, will have a long and happy history! 

Here’s all the information:

When: Saturdays at 12:00 PM, beginning this Saturday, September 9th.

Where: Birmingham Unitarian Church (Woodward Avenue at Lone Pine Road), 38561 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills, MI 48034

We wish Alan and all new meeting members our very best!

We’re thrilled to announce that our dynamic LifeRingers in Colorado have done it again! They reached out to the Behavioral Health Group in Longmont, which specializes in opiate addiction treatment using multiple pathways, including MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment) therapy, who were extremely receptive to the recovery approach that LifeRing offers and starting a meeting in their facility.

In addition to serving with their community, they’ve also been reaching out to correctional institutions in their area to offer inmates hope for recovery, and we couldn’t be more grateful to become a part of their outreach.

This meeting will serve the patients receiving treatment at their center and is also open to the public.
