We all face hurts at some time in our lives. Pain from life’s issues or an addiction can affect us deeply. We often need support to help us find healing and hope.
Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Life After CPS, The Solace Tree and the National Alliance of Mental Illness each meet at The Bridge. Explore these groups that provide an accepting and safe place to move from despair to hope.
AA – Happy Hour Group
Open Meeting, Discussion Group, Non-Smoking, Wheelchair Accessible
Tuesdays & Fridays @ 5:30 pm (Kids Kingdom)
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Al-Anon – Monday Night Living Action
Mondays @ 7:00 pm (Learning Center)
Al-Anon Family Groups meet in over 130 countries to help families and friends of problem drinkers recover from the impacts of a loved one’s drinking. Members help each other by practicing the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous themselves, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
Life After CPS
Caring support group designed for mothers and fathers who have open Child Protective Services cases.

The Solace Tree

The mission of The Solace Tree is that all children, teens, and adults have the freedom to express their feelings associated with loss in a safe and loving environment.
