Each year, an open AA/Al-Anon meeting is held on the Saturdays of Family Weekend and Commencement Weekend. Hosted by the Dean for Issues of Chemical Dependency, the meetings allow Brown students, alums, parents, and friends to integrate their identities as people in recovery with their membership in the Brown community.
The Family and Commencement Weekend meetings are held from 10:30-noon in 203 Salomon Hall on the Main Green. The meetings are open to anyone interested in learning about recovery. Attendance runs anywhere from fifteen to thirty people, and all are given the opportunity to share. Light refreshments are served.
Signs posted in and around Salomon Hall identify the location and time of the meetings. A blurb about the meetings is also included in the programs distributed to visitors and on Brown's website. Please contact Kathleen McSharry for more information about the meetings or about other resources related to recovery at Brown.
