COVID resources for people in recovery

COVID resources for people in recovery

A word about recovery in the time of COVID-19

The Rev. Anne McKeever, Diocesan Recovery Facilitator


Isolation is perilous for people in recovery. We learn that our sobriety depends upon keeping connected to sober people, being accountable to others, being of service to others.
Some people in recovery attend one or more meetings a day. Many people attend several meetings a week.


With quarantines, self-isolation, and lockdowns spreading in response to the COVID-19 virus, and with many in-person support groups ceasing to meet as ordered, other sinister viruses can spread as well: powerlessness, loneliness, anxiety, fear, shame, all the hurts and harms that fuel addictive behaviors.


As our Diocesan Recovery facilitator, I’ve begun compiling this collection of online/virtual recovery support resources. It’s just the beginning. Please share with me resources you find, too. Please share these resources with your congregations and friends. Learn who might need frequent check-ins by phone. Let’s work together to stay as healthy as possible in these tender times.
