NEW! UPDATED SUGGESTED MEETING FORMAT
INCLUDES ABRIDGED TOOLS
At the November 2011 Board of Trustees meeting, the board members approved updates
and revisions for the Suggested Meeting Format:
The revisions include more inclusive language,
an emphasis on abstinent sponsors, added focus on
Lifeline magazine and updated guidelines
for collecting Seventh-Tradition contributions.
In addition, the new meeting format includes the Abridged Tools of Recovery.
This is a board-approved abridgement that provides two or three-sentence
descriptions of each tool, taken directly from The Tools of Recovery pamphlet.
OA groups can use this abridgement to save time during meetings.
The Abridged Tools of Recovery is also available as a stand-alone document:
In case of facility problems please call the meeting contact number.
Try going to two meetings or more a week! Your recovery may depend on it.
