Free Online Sobriety Support During Covid-19

2020-03-16 09:30:13

Tensions are high and uncertainty looms. I believe we are all collectively feeling the fear and anxiety that Covid-19 has unexpectedly brought into our lives. We see devastating photos and videos on the news and social media, and we hear scary numbers, and we worry. For those of us who have committed to being alcohol-free or those of you who may have just started your journey, times are tough. I’ve been receiving messages and have seen posts that say with rising anxiety, many people want to, or have thought about, drinking.

Fortunately, our community has really stepped up during this difficult time and many people are offering free online gatherings for people in or seeking recovery who are looking for support. I’ve put together a list for you all, so you have access over the coming weeks while we put social distancing into practice and flatten the curve of this virus.
