The Rooms, Mutual Aid Meetings, and Support Groups
At our Southern and Northern recovery centers, many groups use space to hold regular meetings. These groups operate independently from Foundation for Recovery. We encourage you to contact the chair, secretary, or other member of your meeting to learn if meeting dates and times will be interrupted. Foundation for Recovery will continue to make space available to any group. We have also provided a list of other online options below. If there are other online recovery resources you would like to share, please feel free to post in the Nevada Recovery Network Facebook group or email our director of communication at sodonnell@forrecovery.org and we'll share across social media.
All Recovery Meetings
Our friends at WEconnect and Unity Recovery have partnered to offer All Recovery Meetings online, four times each day. An All-Recovery
meeting welcomes all who struggle with addiction, are affected by addiction and/or support the recovery lifestyle. An All-Recovery meeting is “non-denominational”, meaning all pathways of recovery are embraced.
In The Rooms
In The Rooms is a free online recovery tool that offers 130 weekly online meetings for those recovering from addiction and related issues. They embrace multiple pathways to recovery, including all 12 Step, Non-12 Step, Wellness and Mental Health modalities.
Recovery Dharma/Refuge
RDO members facilitate many different meetings each week using variations of the Recovery Dharma meeting format. Many combine meditation with readings from the book to inspire discussion, others focus on meditation and sharing alone, while others have special formats like speaker meetings or self-inquiry practice. From the meeting list you can click through to read the full details of the format and structure of each meeting. RDO members meet up at Online/Phone meetings and stay in contact between events. The fruit of this effort is a growing community of meetings driven by spiritual friends.
SMART Recovery
Self-Management And Recovery Training (SMART) is a global community of mutual-support groups. At meetings, participants help one another resolve problems with any addiction (to drugs or alcohol or to activities such as gambling or over-eating). Participants find and develop the power within themselves to change and lead fulfilling and balanced lives guided by SMART Recovery's science-based and sensible 4-Point Program®.
LifeRing Secular Recovery is an organization of people who share practical experiences and sobriety support. There are as many ways to live free of drugs and alcohol as there are stories of successful sober people. Many LifeRing members attend other kinds of meetings or recovery programs, and LifeRing honors those decisions.
Recovery Leadership Academy
Foundation for Recovery, through the Nevada Recovery Network, offers continuing education and training on numerous topics for recovery stakeholders, providers, and peer recovery support specialists.

Scheduled trainings in the community will be postponed or offered via webinar.

Any agency or individual may request a training, either one-on-one or for a group, via webinar by contacting Sean O'Donnell at sodonnell@forrecovery.org
