Anchor of HOPE @ Foundations for Recovery
Sep 24 @ 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm

Anchor of Hope is a parent and family member support group offered through the Foundations for Recovery in Medford, OR. This group exists to bring healing and hope to those who are affected by a loved one struggling with addiction. We seek to provide education, information and encouragement in a safe and supportive environment. We strive to grow in understanding that addiction affects the entire family and by finding ways to help ourselves, we will be healthy enough to help our loved one. Our focus is on gaining courage, strength and perspective for this journey.

About the Leaders:
Scott and Michele understand the heartache, despair, and isolation that come with dealing with a loved one who struggles with addiction. Unable to control or change their loved one’s behavior, they began to focus on what they could do to help themselves. In their search for support, they started facilitating a group offering education, encouragement and prayer. This brought them healing, hope and strength and provided them with tools to help their loved one in healthy ways. They learned that they are not alone and that it is possible to find joy and purpose in life despite the choices of their loved one. They are humbled and grateful to share this life-changing message through the Anchor of Hope Parent and Family Member Support Group.

Gambling Anonymous Meetings @ Foundations for Recovery
Sep 26 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

GAMBLERS 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 a gambling problem.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop gambling. There are no dues or fees for Gamblers Anonymous membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. Gamblers Anonymous is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. Our primary purpose is to stop gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.

Most of us have been unwilling to admit we were real problem gamblers. No one likes to think they are different from their fellows. Therefore, it is not surprising that our gambling careers have been characterized by countless vain attempts to prove we could gamble like other people. The idea that somehow, some day, we will control our gambling is the great obsession of every compulsive gambler. The persistence of this illusion is astonishing. Many pursue it into the gates of prison, insanity or death.

We learned we had to concede fully to our innermost selves that we are compulsive gamblers. This is the first step in our recovery. With reference to gambling, the delusion that we are like other people, or presently may be, has to be smashed. We have lost the ability to control our gambling. We know that no real compulsive gambler ever regains control. All of us felt at times we were regaining control, but such intervals – usually brief -were inevitably followed by still less control,which led in time to pitiful and incomprehensible demoralization. We are convinced that gamblers of our type are in the grip of a progressive illness. Over any considerable period of time we get worse, never better. Therefore, in order to lead normal happy lives, we try to practice to the best of our ability, certain principles in our daily affairs.
