Recovery network starts up in Wilton

The sobriety organization LifeRing will begin weekly meetings in Connecticut on Tuesday, July 19, in Room 31 at Comstock Community Center on School Road. Meetings will begin at 6 p.m.

According to its website, 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. There are four LifeRing meetings that take place each week at Greenwich Hospital.

Participants support one another to 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,” the website says.

The organization does not focus on religious faith, nor does it adhere to any “steps” other than abstinence. Recovery is based on a person’s own effort and motivation.
