So glad your daughter has agreed to attend meetings
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Kris,

So glad that your daughter has agreed to begin attending 12 step meetings to help her with her addiction. I would recommend you also attend meetings with her because research has shown that if her family attends meetings with her, then her chances for recovery significantly improve.

I would recommend that you attend Celebrate Recovery, which is a recovery program created by Saddle Back church. It is now offered all around the country and is a excellent program to help your daughter to end her addiction. It will also help you to heal the wounds that the addiction has caused you. There is a meeting Friday night right in your area:

Lake Forest
Saddleback Church
1 Saddleback Parkway, Lake Forest, CA 92630
Friday 7:00-9:00 PM

Otherwise I would recommend AA meetings, but you may have to try a few different meeting until you find one that both you and your daughter like. Meetings at churches are often your best bet because they are confidential and usually well run.

Here is a website you can visit to find AA meetings in your area

Good Luck,

Debbie
