When meeting in a small group there are rules. This maintains the focus on our own recovery, remaining a safe place to share intimate details of one’s life, and to show respect to the others in recovery.

RULE 1: Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings. Please limit your sharing to 3-5 minutes.

RULE 2: We are here to support one another. We will not attempt to "fix" one another.

RULE 3: Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements. What is shared in the group stays in the group.

RULE 4: There will be no cross-talk please. Cross-talk is when two individuals engage in a dialogue, excluding all others. Each person is free to express feelings without interruption.

RULE 5: Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered recovery group.
