Medication Assisted Recovery Anonymous
Medication-Assisted Recovery Anonymous (MARA) is a support group of people who believe in the value of medication as a means to recovery. We understand individual needs may not be the same; backgrounds may not be the same; futures may not be the same. However, our desire to live a safe lifestyle joins us together. Non-judgement is our code (taken from the MARA preamble). Many people who use prescribed medication to aid in their recovery sometimes feel uncomfortable and even unwelcome at traditional recovery meetings. Weekly meetings are held at The Recovery Station in Batavia.
Nar-Anon is a family-oriented support group designed to help provide a welcoming and understanding environment for those affected by someone recovering from drug or narcotic addition.
Al-Anon is a support group for the friends, family and loved ones of alcoholics to join together to discuss their struggles, concerns and issues. Al-Anon is completely anonymous, and free for all who attend.
