In the coming weeks, sober folks are trying online recovery groups during Coronavirus pandemic. Going to in-person recovery meetings has been discouraged due to the COVID-19 crisis around the world. My homegroup is vital to me. However, I am taking proper precautions by staying at home and trying out a virtual meeting.
Some of the meetings listed are 12 Step programs and some of them are not. See what works for you and your sobriety. Remember that health, mental and physical, are the most important thing for us right now.
Social distancing is necessary right now. I’ve rounded up a list of virtual recovery meetings to use as a resource during the coronavirus quarantine.

Sobriety is Vital
The last few weeks have been so anxiety-inducing, but I know that I can stay sober as long as I keep my routines and stay in touch with my sober community. I will be trying online recovery groups during the Coronavirus quarantine for the first time!
