Save-A-Star Drug Awareness Foundation Co-Hosts ZOOM 'All Recovery' Meetings Monday Nights
In this uncertain time of social distancing and staying home during the Covid19 pandemic, the Save-A-Star Drug Awareness Foundation is co-sponsoring All Recovery Virtual Meetings, every Monday night from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom.
The Zoom virtual meetings are facilitated by Gail Katz, founding director from the Save-A-Star Drug Awareness Foundation and Dr. Mary Roberson, EdD., LCPC at the Northern Illinois Recovery Community Organization(NIRCO). The meetings are run in an "All Recovery" format. All Recovery is not a 12-step program and welcomes all pathways of recovery.
"We are excited and proud to announce these much needed Zoom meetings which provide a very relaxed environment with the intentions of connecting with others who want to stay clean and sober," said Gail Katz, one of the founders of the Save-A-Star Drug Awareness Foundation. "Now more than ever, everyone in recovery needs support in any capacity and Save-A-Star is here for them."
Individuals, families and communities are welcome to join the All Recovery Zoom sessions. The objective is to help build a post-treatment network of support during these hard and stressful times.
The virtual meetings start at 7 p.m. on Monday nights. The Zoom Meeting ID is 952-5704-0534 and enter passcode 195905, or call into the meeting at 312-626-6799.
According to Katz, this is a safe place for recovering addicts to get support from other recovering addicts as well as from various government and community resource's that will give them hope for their future. The most recent Zoom session discussed forgiveness.
"We understand that recovery is a life-long process and these Zoom sessions provide a place where people can connect with others in recovery and stay in recovery, with a life-long partnership of support," said Katz.
The Save-A-Star Drug Awareness Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity with a goal to provide the first permanent drug education and post treatment network in the north suburbs.
The Foundation was founded in 2007 by David and Gail Katz and their daughter, Melissa Katz Gold, following the death of the Katz's son, and Melissa's brother, Daniel, from an overdose of prescription drug medication. He was just 25 years-old. The goal of the foundation is to create drug awareness.
