LifeRing Secular Recovery is an abstinence-based, worldwide network of individuals seeking to live in recovery from addiction to alcohol or to other non-medically indicated drugs. In LifeRing, we offer each other peer-to-peer support in ways that encourage personal growth and continued learning through personal empowerment. Our approach is based on developing, refining, and sharing our own personal strategies for continued abstinence and crafting a rewarding life in recovery. In short, we are sober, secular, and self-directed. Please click here for additional information.

If you're looking to get clean and sober or just thinking about it, reading is a good way to learn about recovery. You can start with two books from LifeRing Press: Empowering Your Sober Self - a general introduction to LifeRing, and Recovery by Choice, a Workbook - a guide to help you build an abstinence-based Personal Recovery Program. For those people who want a better understanding of how a LifeRing meeting works you can read How Was Your Week. These books are available at the LifeRing Bookstore.
Start a LifeRing Meeting in your Community
Looking for a way to help yourself and your community? Start a face-to-face LifeRing meeting. We are always looking for motivated people to start new LifeRing meetings. If you are interested, you need to have six months of sobriety and a desire for a challenge in life. Starting a new meeting is not easy, but it can be a rewarding experience, both for yourself and others. Click here for more information.
