Calendar Event Sorting

At the top, the 24/7/365 SAMHSA Disaster Helpline and similar links.

Next, Bundled “All Day” Events

Some organizations (like 12 step recovery programs, AA, NA, AlAnon, etc.) have so many events happening throughout the day that they need to be in a bundled listing to spare endless scrolling.  Often there is a link to look up events by zip code and other criteria.

Lastly, Time-Specific Events

So you can see what’s happening in the next hours, time specific events are tagged and listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night.  There can be events and warmlines operating in different time zones, though we try to list all in Oregon’s Pacific Time Zone.

OHA – Oregon Health Authority – Measure 110 Pays for Emergency Lodging While People Wait for Residental Substance use Treatment
Jul 24 all-day

 

 

 

 

When someone struggling with drug use reaches out for help, there’s a chance they’ll never get that help if they do not have housing. Often there are waiting lists for residential treatment services, and it is important to offer help with housing at the moment treatment is desired.

Organizations such as OnTrack Rogue Valley are using Measure 110 funding to fill critical gaps in the substance use treatment and recovery system, such as providing emergency lodging for people waiting for residential treatment beds.

REDDITORSINRECOVERY

The place for Redditors in recovery from addiction

 

A place for Redditors in recovery to hang out, share experiences, and support each other. Discuss the various ways to achieve and maintain a life free from active addiction. Everyone is welcome.

 

Use this link to join the group, Reddit membership is required

https://www.reddit.com/r/REDDITORSINRECOVERY/

 

REDDITORSINRECOVERY RULES

Don’t be obnoxious

We all have our own ideas of what recovery is, and many of us are very passionate about our ideas. Please be considerate that what worked for others might not be the same as what worked for you.

 

No promotion of outside sources (youtube channel, blog, company, etc)

This particular community is about direct conversation between people trying or wanting to recover in hopes of sharing our experience. There are plenty of other communities on reddit that allow youtube channel posts.

 

No solicitations to studies or research

While studies are great, we can’t sort the good material from the bad or fake marketing pushes, so no solicitation to studies of any kind.

 

No doxxing, period

Don’t post anything that identifies an individual or gives any information about that individual, including but not limited to email or physical address, real name, workplace, or accounts on other services.

 

No medical advice

Support for Family Members of Addicts/Alcoholics

24/7 Weekdays & Weekends

This group is about supporting one another through this very difficult journey of having a family member in the grips of addiction. I know first hand how it feels and how it seems you are the only one dealing with it. I also know how it feels to not be able to talk to anyone about it because of the stigma that is attached to addiction and feeling the judgement from others. This is a safe place to talk about it and know others understand.

We can share our thoughts, resources we have found, and even cry together and share our triumphs along the way. I want to offer hope where it seems there is no hope. Just remember, you are never alone!

About Refuge Recovery

Buddhism recognizes a non-theistic approach to spiritual practice. The Refuge Recovery program of recovery does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery. This program contains a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addictions. Using the traditional formulation, the program of recovery consists of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. When sincerely practiced, the program will ensure a full recovery from addiction and a lifelong sense of well-being and happiness. Of course, like every path, you can only get to your destination by moving forward, one foot in front of the other. The path is gradual and comprehensive, a map of the inner terrain that must be traversed in the process of recovery. The path includes daily meditation practices, written investigations of the causes and conditions of your addictions, and how to find or create the community you will need in order to heal and awaken. Our community helps shape, inform, and enhance the program with their direct experience of practicing these principles. This program, then, should be viewed as a collaborative effort. We have every intention to learn, grow and evolve.

What Is Alcoholics Anonymous?

Alcoholics Anonymous is a community of men and women who have found a solution to their drinking problem. We are:

  • Anonymous – no personal information, no last names
  • Nonprofessional – no paid counselors
  • Self-supporting – no cost except what we choose to put in the basket
  • Inclusive – everyone is welcome
  • Non-political – we don’t take sides
  • Non-sectarian – not promoting any religion
  • Available almost everywhere in the U.S. and world-wide

About Meetings

A.A. Groups conduct meetings, usually weekly, where we share our experience, strength, and hope. Portland area meetings are listed on the Meetings page by day, time, and location.

The two most common kinds of A.A. meetings are:

OPEN MEETINGS: Open to alcoholics and their families, anyone who thinks they may have a drinking problem, as well as anyone curious about A.A.

CLOSED MEETINGS: Limited to those with a desire to stop drinking, they provide an opportunity for sharing on problems related to alcoholism and discussion of solutions found in the recovery program.

What happens at an A.A. Meeting?

Some meetings are specific to men, women, LBGTQ, and speakers of minority languages.  There is often some socializing before the meeting begins. Meetings commonly begin with a short prayer or moment of silence, followed by a few readings from A.A. literature.

Following announcements, the basket is passed; typical contributions are a dollar or two but are not required. The money collected is used for coffee, rent for the meeting space, A.A. literature purchases, and support of local, state, and national A.A. services, such as this website. Large donations are actively discouraged.

Common meeting formats include:

Speaker – one person relating their personal experience with alcoholism and recovery
Group discussion of a topic chosen by the chairperson
Step Study meeting where one or more of the 12 Steps are discussed

In keeping with A.A.’s primary purpose, discussion is generally focused on recovery from alcoholism.

The meeting is typically ended with a prayer, usually the Serenity Prayer or the Lord’s Prayer, often with the group forming a circle and holding hands. Participation in the prayer is optional. More socializing typically follows the close of the formal meeting, and members may gather afterward at a nearby coffee shop.

A.A. Preamble

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS® is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.

What is Families Anonymous?

Families Anonymous celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2021. We were formed in 1971 by a group of concerned parents in California who were seeking ways of dealing with the problem of substance abuse and addiction in their children. Our members include parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, significant others, other family members and friends of those with a current, suspected or former drug problem. We have been one of the best kept secrets in the recovery community, even though we have groups throughout the world.

Families Anonymous is a 12 Step fellowship for the families and friends who have known a feeling of desperation concerning the destructive behavior of someone very near to them, whether caused by drugs, alcohol, or related behavioral problems. When you come into our rooms you are no longer alone, but among friends who have experienced similar problems. Any concerned person is encouraged to attend our meetings, even if there is only a suspicion of a problem.

Your identity is protected in our meetings. We know each other by our first names only. Anonymity of our members is paramount to the success of our program. Not only is anonymity an underlying principle of the program, but it is so important that it is part of our name.

You have nothing to lose but your pain and anger. Read on if you are ready to find the peace and serenity that our members have found through the working of the FA program.

About Refuge Recovery

Buddhism recognizes a non-theistic approach to spiritual practice. The Refuge Recovery program of recovery does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery. This program contains a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addictions. Using the traditional formulation, the program of recovery consists of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. When sincerely practiced, the program will ensure a full recovery from addiction and a lifelong sense of well-being and happiness. Of course, like every path, you can only get to your destination by moving forward, one foot in front of the other. The path is gradual and comprehensive, a map of the inner terrain that must be traversed in the process of recovery. The path includes daily meditation practices, written investigations of the causes and conditions of your addictions, and how to find or create the community you will need in order to heal and awaken. Our community helps shape, inform, and enhance the program with their direct experience of practicing these principles. This program, then, should be viewed as a collaborative effort. We have every intention to learn, grow and evolve.

What is Al-Anon & Alateen

Al-Anon is …

a worldwide organization that offers a program of recovery for the families and friends of alcoholics, whether the alcoholic seeks help or even recognizes the existence of a drinking problem. Members give and receive comfort and understanding through a mutual exchange of experiences, strength, and hope.  Sharing of similar problems binds individuals and groups together in a bond that is protected by a policy of anonymity.

Al-Anon is not…

a religious organization or a counseling agency. It is not a treatment center nor is it allied with any other organization offering such services. Al-Anon Family Groups, which includes Alateen for teenage members, neither express opinions on outside issues nor endorse outside enterprises. No dues or fees are required. Membership is voluntary, requiring only that one’s own life has been adversely affected by someone else’s drinking problem.

Whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not…

Al-Anon offers hope and recovery to people affected by the alcoholism of a loved one or friend. Help is here for the asking.

What is Families Anonymous?

Families Anonymous celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2021. We were formed in 1971 by a group of concerned parents in California who were seeking ways of dealing with the problem of substance abuse and addiction in their children. Our members include parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, significant others, other family members and friends of those with a current, suspected or former drug problem. We have been one of the best kept secrets in the recovery community, even though we have groups throughout the world.

Families Anonymous is a 12 Step fellowship for the families and friends who have known a feeling of desperation concerning the destructive behavior of someone very near to them, whether caused by drugs, alcohol, or related behavioral problems. When you come into our rooms you are no longer alone, but among friends who have experienced similar problems. Any concerned person is encouraged to attend our meetings, even if there is only a suspicion of a problem.

Your identity is protected in our meetings. We know each other by our first names only. Anonymity of our members is paramount to the success of our program. Not only is anonymity an underlying principle of the program, but it is so important that it is part of our name.

You have nothing to lose but your pain and anger. Read on if you are ready to find the peace and serenity that our members have found through the working of the FA program.

OHA – Oregon Health Authority – Measure 110 Pays for Emergency Lodging While People Wait for Residental Substance use Treatment
Jul 25 all-day

 

 

 

 

When someone struggling with drug use reaches out for help, there’s a chance they’ll never get that help if they do not have housing. Often there are waiting lists for residential treatment services, and it is important to offer help with housing at the moment treatment is desired.

Organizations such as OnTrack Rogue Valley are using Measure 110 funding to fill critical gaps in the substance use treatment and recovery system, such as providing emergency lodging for people waiting for residential treatment beds.

The place for Redditors in recovery from addiction

 

A place for Redditors in recovery to hang out, share experiences, and support each other. Discuss the various ways to achieve and maintain a life free from active addiction. Everyone is welcome.

REDDITORSINRECOVERY RULES

Don’t be obnoxious

We all have our own ideas of what recovery is, and many of us are very passionate about our ideas. Please be considerate that what worked for others might not be the same as what worked for you.

 

No promotion of outside sources (youtube channel, blog, company, etc)

This particular community is about direct conversation between people trying or wanting to recover in hopes of sharing our experience. There are plenty of other communities on reddit that allow youtube channel posts.

 

No solicitations to studies or research

While studies are great, we can’t sort the good material from the bad or fake marketing pushes, so no solicitation to studies of any kind.

 

No doxxing, period

Don’t post anything that identifies an individual or gives any information about that individual, including but not limited to email or physical address, real name, workplace, or accounts on other services.

 

No medical advice

Support for Family Members of Addicts/Alcoholics

24/7 Weekdays & Weekends

This group is about supporting one another through this very difficult journey of having a family member in the grips of addiction. I know first hand how it feels and how it seems you are the only one dealing with it. I also know how it feels to not be able to talk to anyone about it because of the stigma that is attached to addiction and feeling the judgement from others. This is a safe place to talk about it and know others understand.

We can share our thoughts, resources we have found, and even cry together and share our triumphs along the way. I want to offer hope where it seems there is no hope. Just remember, you are never alone!

What is Families Anonymous?

Families Anonymous celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2021. We were formed in 1971 by a group of concerned parents in California who were seeking ways of dealing with the problem of substance abuse and addiction in their children. Our members include parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, significant others, other family members and friends of those with a current, suspected or former drug problem. We have been one of the best kept secrets in the recovery community, even though we have groups throughout the world.

Families Anonymous is a 12 Step fellowship for the families and friends who have known a feeling of desperation concerning the destructive behavior of someone very near to them, whether caused by drugs, alcohol, or related behavioral problems. When you come into our rooms you are no longer alone, but among friends who have experienced similar problems. Any concerned person is encouraged to attend our meetings, even if there is only a suspicion of a problem.

Your identity is protected in our meetings. We know each other by our first names only. Anonymity of our members is paramount to the success of our program. Not only is anonymity an underlying principle of the program, but it is so important that it is part of our name.

You have nothing to lose but your pain and anger. Read on if you are ready to find the peace and serenity that our members have found through the working of the FA program.

About Refuge Recovery

Buddhism recognizes a non-theistic approach to spiritual practice. The Refuge Recovery program of recovery does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery.

This program contains a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addictions. Using the traditional formulation, the program of recovery consists of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. When sincerely practiced, the program will ensure a full recovery from addiction and a lifelong sense of well-being and happiness.

Of course, like every path, you can only get to your destination by moving forward, one foot in front of the other. The path is gradual and comprehensive, a map of the inner terrain that must be traversed in the process of recovery. The path includes daily meditation practices, written investigations of the causes and conditions of your addictions, and how to find or create the community you will need in order to heal and awaken. Our community helps shape, inform, and enhance the program with their direct experience of practicing these principles. This program, then, should be viewed as a collaborative effort. We have every intention to learn, grow and evolve.

What Is Alcoholics Anonymous?

Alcoholics Anonymous is a community of men and women who have found a solution to their drinking problem. We are:

  • Anonymous – no personal information, no last names
  • Nonprofessional – no paid counselors
  • Self-supporting – no cost except what we choose to put in the basket
  • Inclusive – everyone is welcome
  • Non-political – we don’t take sides
  • Non-sectarian – not promoting any religion
  • Available almost everywhere in the U.S. and world-wide

About Meetings

A.A. Groups conduct meetings, usually weekly, where we share our experience, strength, and hope. Portland area meetings are listed on the Meetings page by day, time, and location.

The two most common kinds of A.A. meetings are:

OPEN MEETINGS: Open to alcoholics and their families, anyone who thinks they may have a drinking problem, as well as anyone curious about A.A.

CLOSED MEETINGS: Limited to those with a desire to stop drinking, they provide an opportunity for sharing on problems related to alcoholism and discussion of solutions found in the recovery program.

What happens at an A.A. Meeting?

Some meetings are specific to men, women, LBGTQ, and speakers of minority languages.  There is often some socializing before the meeting begins. Meetings commonly begin with a short prayer or moment of silence, followed by a few readings from A.A. literature.

Following announcements, the basket is passed; typical contributions are a dollar or two but are not required. The money collected is used for coffee, rent for the meeting space, A.A. literature purchases, and support of local, state, and national A.A. services, such as this website. Large donations are actively discouraged.

Common meeting formats include:

Speaker – one person relating their personal experience with alcoholism and recovery
Group discussion of a topic chosen by the chairperson
Step Study meeting where one or more of the 12 Steps are discussed

In keeping with A.A.’s primary purpose, discussion is generally focused on recovery from alcoholism.

The meeting is typically ended with a prayer, usually the Serenity Prayer or the Lord’s Prayer, often with the group forming a circle and holding hands. Participation in the prayer is optional. More socializing typically follows the close of the formal meeting, and members may gather afterward at a nearby coffee shop.

A.A. Preamble

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS® is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.

  • Nonprofessional – no paid counselors
  • Self-supporting – no cost except what we choose to put in the basket
  • Inclusive – everyone is welcome
  • Non-political – we don’t take sides
  • Non-sectarian – not promoting any religion
  • Available almost everywhere in the U.S. and world-wide

About Meetings

A.A. Groups conduct meetings, usually weekly, where we share our experience, strength, and hope. Portland area meetings are listed on the Meetings page by day, time, and location.

The two most common kinds of A.A. meetings are:

OPEN MEETINGS: Open to alcoholics and their families, anyone who thinks they may have a drinking problem, as well as anyone curious about A.A.

CLOSED MEETINGS: Limited to those with a desire to stop drinking, they provide an opportunity for sharing on problems related to alcoholism and discussion of solutions found in the recovery program.

What happens at an A.A. Meeting?

Some meetings are specific to men, women, LBGTQ, and speakers of minority languages.  There is often some socializing before the meeting begins. Meetings commonly begin with a short prayer or moment of silence, followed by a few readings from A.A. literature.

Following announcements, the basket is passed; typical contributions are a dollar or two but are not required. The money collected is used for coffee, rent for the meeting space, A.A. literature purchases, and support of local, state, and national A.A. services, such as this website. Large donations are actively discouraged.

Common meeting formats include:

Speaker – one person relating their personal experience with alcoholism and recovery
Group discussion of a topic chosen by the chairperson
Step Study meeting where one or more of the 12 Steps are discussed

In keeping with A.A.’s primary purpose, discussion is generally focused on recovery from alcoholism.

The meeting is typically ended with a prayer, usually the Serenity Prayer or the Lord’s Prayer, often with the group forming a circle and holding hands. Participation in the prayer is optional. More socializing typically follows the close of the formal meeting, and members may gather afterward at a nearby coffee shop.

A.A. Preamble

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS® is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.

About Refuge Recovery

Buddhism recognizes a non-theistic approach to spiritual practice. The Refuge Recovery program of recovery does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery. This program contains a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addictions. Using the traditional formulation, the program of recovery consists of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. When sincerely practiced, the program will ensure a full recovery from addiction and a lifelong sense of well-being and happiness. Of course, like every path, you can only get to your destination by moving forward, one foot in front of the other. The path is gradual and comprehensive, a map of the inner terrain that must be traversed in the process of recovery. The path includes daily meditation practices, written investigations of the causes and conditions of your addictions, and how to find or create the community you will need in order to heal and awaken. Our community helps shape, inform, and enhance the program with their direct experience of practicing these principles. This program, then, should be viewed as a collaborative effort. We have every intention to learn, grow and evolve.

What is Families Anonymous?

Families Anonymous celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2021. We were formed in 1971 by a group of concerned parents in California who were seeking ways of dealing with the problem of substance abuse and addiction in their children. Our members include parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, significant others, other family members and friends of those with a current, suspected or former drug problem. We have been one of the best kept secrets in the recovery community, even though we have groups throughout the world.

Families Anonymous is a 12 Step fellowship for the families and friends who have known a feeling of desperation concerning the destructive behavior of someone very near to them, whether caused by drugs, alcohol, or related behavioral problems. When you come into our rooms you are no longer alone, but among friends who have experienced similar problems. Any concerned person is encouraged to attend our meetings, even if there is only a suspicion of a problem.

Your identity is protected in our meetings. We know each other by our first names only. Anonymity of our members is paramount to the success of our program. Not only is anonymity an underlying principle of the program, but it is so important that it is part of our name.

You have nothing to lose but your pain and anger. Read on if you are ready to find the peace and serenity that our members have found through the working of the FA program.
