What we're about

This is the OFFICIAL Meetup of the LGBT Center of Orange County. Through this group, we will continue to carry out our mission of advocating on behalf of the LGBTQ community and providing services that ensure its well-being and positive identity. We've been doing this since 1971, so it seemed only natural to turn to the internet and Meetup to galvanize the 300,000+ members of our community and our countless allies to provide reasons and a way to come together. Join us for social gatherings, professional networking, educational opportunities, gallery openings, outdoor activities, and activism to create real policy change. There is something for everyone on the spectrum and our allies. We look forward to meeting you!

SMART Recovery Meeting

305 E 4th St

SMART Recovery is a science-based alternative to the traditional addiction support meetings. It is an abstinence-based non-profit organization, comprised almost entirely of volunteers that has meetings internationally as well as online. SMART Recovery is a judgement-free zone and anyone looking for support through their recovery journey are welcome to attend. SMART Recovery helps people recover from all types of addictive behavior, including, but not limited to: drugs, alcohol, gambling, food, sexual, as well as other substances and activities. The use of religious and spiritual beliefs and practices during recovery is a personal choice and not a part of our program. SMART Recovery can be used as a primary or supplemental support program. We follow a 4-Point Program to Build and Maintain Motivation, Cope with Urges, Manage Thoughts Feelings and Behaviors, and Live a Balanced Life. SMART Recovery meetings provide: Mutual Support Discussion and Exchange of Useful Information Modeling and Acceptance Times: Every 1st and 3rd Sunday from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
