Don’t believe in God? You are not alone! Join the Humanist Community of Central Ohio [HCCO], a community that values people, emphasizes reason, and focuses on this world.

Our presenter for this month is Lisa Swing Corney from LifeRing Secular Recovery.

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) affects many people, both directly and indirectly. When someone thinks about getting “clean and sober,” Alcoholics Anonymous [AA] and 12-Step treatment centers typically come to mind. While a great many people have been helped by AA, there are also many people for whom AA and 12-Step methodology, with its religious origins and one-size-fits-all approach, do not feel like a good fit.

Too few people have any awareness of secular recovery pathways. LifeRing Secular Recovery is one of those pathways. Rather than requiring surrender to a “higher power,” LifeRing believes in “Empowering Your Sober Self.” Increased public awareness of the various available recovery approaches to SUD is crucial. LifeRing can’t help everyone — no single approach can — but LifeRing can help a great many people. To ensure recognition of recovery organizations like LifeRing, we need to get the word out; not just to the people who are battling SUD, but also their families, health care providers, and communities. Additionally, those whose loved ones are seeking help through LifeRing or other approaches should be able to enthusiastically support their loved ones without fear that a lack of “doing the steps” will cause their loved one harm.

Lisa is a wife, mother, daughter, proud owner of an 8-year-old puggle, avid Trekkie, and a person in long-term recovery. She is the LifeRing Frontier Regions Coordinator and a LifeRing convenor (facilitator). Lisa has a strong passion for helping others to find and maintain recovery and for helping to bring LifeRing Secular Recovery into new areas and communities.
