This is a recovery group founded on the principles of 12-step recovery. It is open to anyone struggling with one or more of the following addictive, compulsive, or unwanted behaviors:
- Overspending - Financial mismanagement - Compulsive "debting" - Reckless financial decisions - Inability to create or stick to a budget - Compulsive shopping
All meetup members will be required to adhere to these basic requirements:
1.) Anonymity and confidentiality are mandatory:
a.) Who attends or does not attend is confidential
b.) What is said in the group stays in the group
2.) There will be no cross-talk or attempting to solve others' problems during recovery meetings.
a.) We will be there to listen only.
b.) Discussing solutions or providing recommendations can occur after meetings.
3.) Comply with meeting ground rules (will be read in each recovery meeting).
4.) Using the group to promote businesses and/or other meetups is prohibited.
5.) Asking for money or financial support is prohibited.
6.) This group is for those with the aforementioned problems only...it is not a support group for spouses or loved ones of people with spending problems. Check out Al-Anon or CODA to take care of yourself. It is also not a place to market books, other groups, financial planners, funds, stocks, etc.
7.) This is a group for people focused on recovery and responsibility. As such, the meetup will function on a 3-strike rule...if you commit to attend a meeting and something comes up - change your RSVP or text the organizer. No shows without contact or explanation post-meeting will count as a strike. 3 strikes and you may be removed from the group.
Recovery Meeting Format:
Meetings will be similar to other recovery groups in format (e.g. AA, Al-Anon, Celebrate Recovery, etc. Use of these group names is for illustration purposes only. We are not affiliated with these groups.
