Group recovery meetings are an essential part of each guest’s recovery plan. In our non-clinical recovery center, we use peer support and the 12 steps to help our guests rebuild their lives and heal from the effects of addiction. Our group substance use disorder program is designed to help guests achieve long-term recovery.
We can also connect guests with intensive outpatient programs and individual therapy through trusted providers. No matter where you are on your journey to recovery, Sereno Ridge can help.

Group Recovery Meetings
In group meetings, our guests work through the 12 steps alongside others who are in recovery. While we encourage our guests to spend time on their own using the principles of the steps to transform their lives, group meetings are a foundational part of our 12-step immersion retreat.
Why are group meetings such an integral part of addiction recovery programs? They offer a number of unique benefits, such as:
- Addiction can be isolating, but in group meetings, you’ll spend time with others who have been through similar challenges
- You’ll build a network of support and accountability with your peers
- Those who are farther along on the journey to recovery can encourage newly sober participants
- You can relearn life skills like effective communication and problem-solving in groups
- Groups offer accountability and encourage long-term commitment to sobriety
Seeing the successes of others in recovery can be inspiring. And when you face challenges on your journey to recovery, you can lean on your group members for support and advice. Group meetings are also an ideal way to develop healthy coping skills, which can help you avoid relapse and maintain recovery even in the face of stress and other triggers. You will also discover tools to help you enjoy a purpose-filled life, where previously you turned to drugs and/or alcohol to manage from day to day.
What to Expect in Recovery Meetings
Even though our lodge offers plenty of space, we limit our capacity to 16 guests. This allows us to offer more personalized support and privacy for each guest. Group sizes are small, which can help you connect with others more easily.
During group meetings, peer support specialists introduce discussion topics and ask questions. No one will be required to share if they don’t feel comfortable opening up, but we encourage our guests to find the strength to share their stories. Those who struggle with addiction can develop healthy coping skills in group meetings, making long-term recovery possible. You might role-play and act out different scenarios, talk about how to navigate conflict at work or with loved ones, or work through the 12 steps during meetings.
At Sereno Ridge Recovery, we understand that addiction recovery programs cannot be one-size-fits-all. Even though you may have shared experiences with your peers, we take each guest’s needs and goals into account. Our customized plans might include yoga, meditation, exercise, or even outside treatment programs. Talk to an admissions specialist today to learn more about our personalized plans. We also offer a women’s recovery program, men’s recovery program, and family recovery program.
