Preliminary Research Outcomes from a LifeRing Canada Study By UVic Department of Psychology


In spring and summer of 2012, LifeRing Canada partnered with Dr. Erica Woodin and Alina Sotskova, M.Sc. from the Department of Psychology at the University of Victoria to carry out a research project with LifeRing Canada members.

Some of the goals of this study were:
1) To learn more about the members of LifeRing Canada.
2) To explore how participation in LifeRing is connected with improved well-being.
3) To understand different perspectives on the strengths of LifeRing, as well as the areas where LifeRing can potentially improve.
To achieve these goals, we asked persons who attend LifeRing to complete a survey. The survey questions asked about experiences in recovery, mental health and well-being, substance use, and experiences with LifeRing meetings.
