12-Step Programs @ The Sanctuary
Adult Children of Alcoholics
ACA provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment that allows us to grieve our childhoods and conduct an honest inventory of ourselves and our family—so we may (i) identify and heal core trauma, (ii) experience freedom from shame and abandonment, and (iii) become our own loving parents.
Al-Anon members are people, just like you, who are worried about someone with a drinking problem.
Al-Anon members are people just like you and me–people who have been affected by someone else’s drinking. They are parents, children, spouses, partners, brothers, sisters, other family members, friends, employers, employees, and coworkers of alcoholics. No matter what our specific experience has been we share a common bond: we feel our lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking.
Emotional Sobriety & Meditation
Emotional Sobriety is being in the world in a way that allows us to recognize our feelings and needs, as well as the feelings and needs of others. Informed by this knowledge, we come to act and interact more skillfully with ourselves and others, avoiding harm to them and us.
