Recovery Meetings Near Brown or Accessible Online

The Recovery Meetings linked below have no affiliation with Brown University.  The information on this page is provided as a service to the community. Due to the pandemic, this list is likely not 100% up to date, as many meetings have changed location or are currently meeting online. Due to this constant flux, if you need help finding an in-person meeting, please contact Lindsay Garcia, the Dean for Recovery and Substance-Free Student Initiatives.

The list below describes meetings that take place in-person on Brown’s campus or within a few blocks, though some are currently meeting online. Many are attended by young people in recovery. If you want to dip your toe into recovery meetings but are not yet ready to walk into a meeting, there are countless meeting opportunities online as a result of the pandemic. A complete list of common 12-step fellowship meetings in Rhode Island can be found here for: AA, NA and Al-Anon.
