LifeRing Colorado

Empower Your Sober Self


When nothing works anymore to control your drinking and using, try something new and radical: Abstinence!

  •  LifeRing secular recovery is a network of people who support one another in living free of alcohol and other non-medically indicated addictive drugs.
  • In LifeRing meetings your religious and spiritual beliefs, or lack thereof, remain a private matter.  There is no religious content in meetings.
  • LifeRing serves as an alternative or complement to 12-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous.  We support any and all paths to recovery.
  • This website focuses on LifeRing activities and issues specific to Colorado including a list of all Colorado LifeRing meetings.
