About Recovery International Meetings:
At Recovery International meetings, you learn & use practical cognitive-behavioral tools to deal with anxiety, depression, stress, and anger in a safe supportive group setting. The group format provides hope as the experienced members demonstrate their improvement to the new members. The meeting also provides social contact for those isolated by fear and depression. Meetings are peer-led, anonymous, open to everyone, and we only request a voluntary contribution to cover administrative costs.

About the Recovery International Method:
The Recovery International Method (aka RI) is a system of cognitive-behavioral self-help techniques for controlling behavior and changing attitudes. People who practice the living skills detailed in the Recovery International Method learn to change their thoughts and behaviors; changes in attitudes and beliefs follow.
Neuropsychiatrist Abraham Low, MD, developed these self-help techniques, which are explained in his books and articles such as Manage Your Fears Manage Your Anger and Mental Health Through Will-Training (http://www.recoveryinternational.org/system/mental-health-through-will-training.asp)
There are three parts to the Recovery International Method:
1. Attending RI meetings and giving four-part examples.
2. Reading Dr. Low’s books.
3. Practicing the RI tools in your daily life.
