This is a small group for men curious about sobriety, as well as those in recovery seeking structured group therapy and fellowship. The group is an excellent supplement for those invested in the 12 steps and those not currently interested in AA. Groups are part skill-based workshops designed to increase resilience and prevent relapse and part open (but focused) discussion.
