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.

DDA Chat room and resource group

Greetings,
This new chat/resource group was created to help support those and their families who suffer from mental health and, or, addiction struggles during the coronavirus situation.
Please know that we are all in this together, so please invite those who might be able to help or benefit.  The five rules of respect will govern this site, so love, encouragement, and valid resources are the primary mission of this group. We look forward to the support of the community and sharing support and resources for those who need it.
IMPORTANT: Anyone who chooses to promote panic, fear, racism, or misinformation will be asked to stop and or be blocked.
Love, peace, and blessings (LPB)

Join The Facebook Group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1053021475070135/

DDA’s Five Rules of Respect
1. First, and most importantly, who you see here and what is said here, let it stay here! (Here! Here!) Confidentiality and anonymity are the spiritual foundations that keep our recovery possible.
2. Questions and answers are welcome and positive feedback is given, when asked for.
3. Keep it real.
4. Try not to disrupt the group.
5. It is OK to pass, if you do not wish to share.

Facebook Group – 24/7
Group By Simon Greygoose:
Just a polite reminder about my Small Friends Recovery Closed Group, We have some amazing, kind and wonderful members.
You’re all welcome to join, if you feel like you are struggling with anything life throws at you, addictions, illness, stress, anxiety,
anything at all, I started this group, when I first went into recovery, and it has been amazing the response and help I received from the members who joined I’m so grateful to all ❤️
I really want to make this group, so different from other ones, to be unique and have a family feeling of friends actually caring for others with compassion and love for each other.
It’s a safe place to be without judgement from others, and extremely confidential. Also, if you feel you can offer advice or just be a caring person who can listen and offer a few words of encouragement to others, We also need your help. The kindest thing another human can do is to offer a helping hand to someone struggling, helping others is priceless.
Unity is strength 💪
Thank you ❤️

In This Together

Addiction Recovery Support Group

Facebook Group 24/7

We are in this together… to help others not slip and fall back into that same pattern of insanity. We are here to help lift each other up, encourage one another, and just be there to lend an ear, and a helping hand. We are NOT here to judge! We are spreading awareness that we DO recover, one day at a time! Keep in mind, addiction comes in many forms, not just drugs or alcohol. I.e. food, sex, shopping, gambling etc. Feel free to post what ever you would like.
We are here to offer
VALUE
SUPPORT
MOTIVATION
RESOURCES
The ultimate goal is to replace the instant gratification of addiction with a fulfilling, meaningful life of abundance.
1. Be Kind and Courteous
We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.
2. No Hate Speech or Bullying
Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn’t allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender, or identity will not be tolerated.
3. No Promotions or Spam
Give more than you take to this group. Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links aren’t allowed.
4. Respect Everyone’s Privacy
Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group.

LRSR – LifeRing Secular Recovery – 24 Hour Recovery Chat Room – 24/7 @ Online Via Zoom
May 23 all-day

 

 

24 Hour Recovery Chat Room

 LifeRing Secular Recovery is an organization of people who share practical experiences and sobriety support. There are as many ways to live free of illicit or non-medically indicated drugs and alcohol as there are stories of successful sober people.

Many LifeRing members attend other kinds of meetings or recovery programs, and we honor those decisions. Our meetings, whether in person or online, consist of addicts using their Sober Self to connect with the Sober Self of other addicts. We share advice, understanding, and encouragement. We focus primarily on our current lives, not on the hurts and damages of the past. Two addicts, talking Sober-Self to Sober-Self, learn from each other, and gain strength from each other.

 

Chat Room

To enter the 24-hour Chat Room by clicking on the above or using this link: https://meet56243352.adobeconnect.com/r522ss7kd94t/.

Virtual Pet Loss Support Groups

These listings are provided for information only; they are not recommendations or endorsements.
Due to the COVID pandemic, many pet loss support groups have switched to virtual meetings via Zoom, Google, etc. This has made it possible for many groups to open their meetings to grieving pet owners anywhere in the world. Below, we list a number of support groups in the US that now offer their virtual meetings to anyone, anywhere.

While this list is organized by state for convenience, again, keep in mind that you do not need to be a resident of that state to attend. However, do keep in mind that different states involve different time zones; be sure to check not only the time but the zone of the meeting you wish to attend.

Even though you may be in a safe environment, the feeling of being lost and afraid can still play a significant role in your recovery for several reasons:
1. **Emotional Triggers:** Emotions like feeling lost and afraid can act as triggers for past experiences, traumas, or struggles that may have contributed to your addiction. Addressing these triggers and learning healthy coping mechanisms is crucial for sustained recovery.
2. **Self-Awareness:** Emotions like fear and uncertainty can lead to increased self-awareness. They prompt you to reflect on your thoughts, behaviors, and past choices, which is essential for understanding the underlying causes of your addiction.
3. **Motivation to Change:** Negative emotions can serve as powerful motivators for change. They drive you to seek improvement, growth, and a better quality of life. The discomfort of feeling lost and afraid can push you to make positive changes in your life.
4. **Seeking Support:** Experiencing these emotions can lead you to reach out for help and support from therapists, counselors, support groups, or mentors. It’s a sign of your commitment to healing and making positive changes.
5. **Building Resilience:** Overcoming feelings of being lost and afraid can contribute to building resilience. As you learn to navigate and manage these emotions, you strengthen your ability to handle challenges and setbacks in your recovery journey.
6. **Transforming Negative into Positive:** Utilizing these emotions as a driving force for change can turn a negative experience into a positive catalyst for growth. It empowers you to channel your energy into constructive actions.
7. **Embracing Change:** The discomfort of feeling lost and afraid can help you develop a mindset that is more open to change. Embracing change is essential in recovery, as it involves breaking old patterns and adopting healthier habits.
While being in a safe environment is essential, addressing and processing the emotions you experience is a crucial aspect of comprehensive recovery. Remember that seeking professional guidance, building a support network, and developing coping strategies can help you effectively manage these emotions and continue on your path to healing and growth.

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 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.

Do you use prescribed medication to treat various drug and alcohol use disorders?  Many people who utilize evidence-based science to aid in their recovery sometimes feel uncomfortable in their day-to-day lives.  Additionally, a multitude of people on this healing path have even felt unwelcome at traditional recovery meetings.  We understand.  At Medication-Assisted Recovery Anonymous (MARA), you’re always welcome!

To Attend A Meeting In a Chat Room

When you first log on you will be in The Lounge which is not a meeting room, but open chat fellowship available 24/7 to members of all 12-step groups.

To go to the meeting rooms from The Lounge, click on the 3-dot menu icon at the top left of the chat screen, then click on the meeting room you wish to enter. If you don’t see the 3 dots, click the ESC key or swipe from the left if you are on a mobile device.

Tips for Chat Meetings

There is no real protocol for “informal” chat gatherings in our open chat rooms, but in our meeting rooms, we try to keep it as much of a face-to-face meeting as possible. Just as in a face-to-face meeting, we do not interrupt the person who is “speaking” or crosstalk after they are done.

Also, as in a face-to-face meeting, someone serves as the “chairperson” who opens the meetings, picks a topic and helps keep the meeting focused on the topic discussion as members take turn sharing on the topic.

Some of our meetings have a “greeter” who sends a private message to any late-comers to the meeting to welcome them and tell them the topics of discussion. If the late-comer is new to online meetings, the greeter may also explain briefly how meetings work (see below).

NOTE: To send someone a private message during the meeting, click on their name in the members’ list to the right of the chat window. To receive a private message, click on the name of the person who sent it.

If you wish to share, type an exclamation point like this: !. It’s like raising your hand.

The chair of the meeting will then call on the next person to share. In our chat rooms, it is best to type short lines followed by “. . .” which indicates that you are not finished. Like this:

One of the best tools I have found …
When I find myself under stress …
Is the Serenity Prayer … [done]

The [done] at the ends shows that you are finished, and the chairperson then will call on the next person to share.

That’s it. Those simple tools can keep things orderly even in a full chat room.

For instructions on how to log on to the chat rooms, please see this page.

Our Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement is our fifth tradition, which states, “Each DDA group has one primary purpose – to carry its message of hope and recovery to those who still suffer from the effects of Dual Diagnosis.”

Dual Diagnosis Anonymous is a fellowship of persons who share their experiences, strengths, weaknesses, feelings, fears, and hopes with one another to resolve our dual diagnosis and/or learn to live at peace with unresolved problems. The only requirement for membership in DDA is a desire to develop healthy, addiction-free lifestyles.

Since 1996, we have been serving persons with severe and persistent mental health and/or substance use challenges and their families in Oregon, numerous states, and worldwide. We provide support and fellowship to help overcome and start on the road to recovery from dual diagnosis.

For more information, please contact us at the Central Office using the contact us page or by calling (503)222-6484.
