Who Runs Our Groups?


We call them Convenors. They are those who have “been there done that.” Women and men who have been personally impacted by problematic substance use. They have turned their lives around and are now helping others. Research indicates that getting involved or “giving back” increases the chances of a successful recovery and provides immense meaning and purpose to ones life.

Our convenors go through a formal training program in order to lead meetings. All convenors are required to be sober for at least 6 months, read the convenors’ manual, attend six LifeRing meetings and co-convene at least six meetings with a number of different, senior convenors.
