Recovery International (RI) is a peer-led self-help group that teaches techniques to help us change thoughts and behaviors that cause psychological distress. Whether you or someone you know is looking to overcome a specific fear or phobia, are sleepless because of stress or are dealing with depression, anger, obsessive thoughts or compulsions, RI can help.
We provide reassurance and fellowship through meeting friendly people with similar problems who have found a way to live happier, healthier lives. Meetings are open to everyone over the age of 18. There is no charge to attend but we do collect a free will offering.
The most difficult step is coming to that first meeting. Everyone at the meeting is there to improve or maintain their mental health. Each one of them had to summon the courage to walk in that door the first time. And when they did so they learned their first tool, to endorse themselves for their efforts to get well.
The Kalamazoo group meets every Tuesday 12:00 noon. The Allegan group meets every Monday at 10:00 AM and the Grand Rapids group meets every Saturday at 1:30 PM. For more information about these or other meetings in the West Michigan area contact Fran, the Kalamazoo meeting organizer.
Recovery International is a program of the non-profit organization Abraham Low Self Help Systems. Please visit the national web site for more information on Recovery's tools, stories of hope, and our interactive forum.
