Peters Place RVA recognizes that there are multiple pathways to recovery that often overlap and become intertwined according to individual needs. Many of us started in 12-step programs, but have been successful and felt safe in other groups such as SMART Recovery, Recovery Dharma, all-recovery open meetings, Ben’s Friends and so much more. Recovery meetings are mandatory, and we have seen success through personalized meeting combinations. Our staff is here to help folx along this journey. 


These are some recovery groups that may resonate with folx seeking recovery:


12 Step programs (AA, NA, CA, EDA, GA, Alanon, Celebrate Recovery, etc)

SMART Recovery

Recovery Dharma

Lifering Secular Recovery

Rams in Recovery (meetings open to community)

All Recovery (RIR, Unity Recovery)
