VIRTUAL Support Group Rules

1. Be on time

Sign in time: 1:00pm-1:10. After sign in, the virtual room is locked and no one will be allowed to join in.  Check in/ice breakers start promptly at 1:10 pm, no exceptions. If you are court mandated, be on time.

2. Be present and focused

You are to be fully present and intentional.  NO grocery shopping, NO exercising, NO working, NO distracting activities are allowed.  For those that are court mandated to attend, please note that a progress report is provided to your counselor on your participation and engagement at the end of each group.

3. MUTE your microphone

The group facilitator will ask you once to mute your microphone if there is background noise. You will  be muted  manually if background noise continues.

4. Stay on topic 

The group topics are related to relapse prevention and how to maintain recovery; share stories related to that days group topic.  

5. Do not use alcohol or drugs before attending group.

 If we suspect that someone is under the influence we will ask them to kindly leave.

6. No Violent behavior or language 

NO blatant disrespect or verbal attacks by any member to others will be tolerated.  

7. Confidentiality is a must

Everything discussed will be treated with respect and should only be discussed in group for the participants privacy. What is said in the group stays in the group!

While we are virtual, it is of the utmost importance that you do everything possible to be in a private location so that other individuals cannot hear or see what is going on in group.

8. Respect others choices, feelings and experiences.

Share you feelings just as they are and as best you can. There are no right or wrong statements. Sharing is a gift to everyone in the room. Listen, learn and be respectful always.

9. Take responsibility

You knows what is best for you, therefore you carry the primary responsibility for your well-being during the group. If at any time you need to leave or take a break, for any reason, you are free to do so.  If needed, send a private chat to the facilitator to inform your reason to be excused.  

10. Be supportive, appreciative and non-judgmental.

 Everyone’s presence is appreciated and can be a source of healing for others. No one is required to speak during the meeting. Silence is acceptable. Listening is a gift, too.

11. Learn from each other

  This is an opportunity to observe and learn from the experiences of others. Embrace the opportunity to learn from your peers, see their unique talents, and pick up on their strategies which have helped them in recovery.

12. Listen respectfully

Only one person may speak at time. Do not interrupt. When a person speaks, listen actively, with the goal of relating their experiences to your own.

Breaking these rules may result in permanent dismissal from group.

The group is a safe place where you can share feelings, obtain support, and receive encouragement. The group is broadly defined. It is…


It flows with your needs and interests, respectfully & kindly!!
