Join Sir Peter Bottomley, MP for Worthing West & 12 step groups to hear how we can solve the major problem of addiction in our local communities.
We would like to invite you to a multi-fellowship 12 Step Recovery event hosted by Sir Peter Bottomley MP for Worthing West to be held in the Auditorium at Rooms, 44 The Guildbourne Centre (First Floor), in Worthing town centre from 11:30am to 2:30pm on Friday 3rd March 2023.
Free lunch and refreshments will be provided for all guests, courtesy of Visible Recovery.
The aim of the Recovery Fair is to bring together 12 Step fellowships from across Worthing and connect them with the service providers and communities that they do so much to support.
Many people will be familiar with Alcoholics Anonymous, the 12 Step fellowship for recovery from alcoholism. Less well known is that there are over 30 similar fellowships operating in the UK. These help tens of thousands of people to recover from a whole range of addictions and dependencies such as drugs, gambling, overeating, sex, and emotional or relationship dependencies. They change the lives of the people they support, their families and our whole community.
12 Step groups are proven to work, are free, are immediately available with no waiting lists, and have many meetings every week in Worthing and across the whole of the UK.
The fair is being organised by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on 12 Step Recovery, of which Sir Peter Bottomley is the Chair. We are inviting representatives from all local service providers, and it will spark conversations about our collective response to addiction and dependencies.
Below is the draft agenda:
11:30 doors open, food and drink available
12:00 Welcome (Sir Peter Bottomley)
12:15 3x5min chairs from 3 different fellowships
