12 Step Programs SELF-HELP SUPPORT GROUP

What are Self-Help Groups?

The Franciscan Friars of Saint Francis of Assisi Church offer their facilities as a community service and ministry to many autonomous Self Help Groups.  Each group conducts its meetings independently. Most of the groups listed here are based on the Twelve Step Program of Recovery pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous.   The meetings all generally follow the same format:  a member will share his or her “story” (what it was like, how he or she came to the program, and what it has been like since then). This is then followed by sharing by other members.  This description can be more accurately detailed by members of any of the groups.

What problems are dealt with?

Most of the groups deal with some kind of compulsive or addictive behavior, i.e., behavior that has become out of control and is getting in the way of functioning in daily living.  These problems include alcohol, sex, lying, etc.

How can I learn more about a group?

The best way to learn about any of the groups listed here is to attend one of the meetings and observe.  Members of the group will answer your questions.

Who can join these groups?

Members of these groups are of all races and religions.  All that is necessary is to admit that there is a problem, that it is out of control and that you want help and/or support.

Where are these meetings held?

Meetings are held in classrooms at the

Church of Saint Francis of Assisi
Adult Education Center
135 W. 31st Street,
between 6th & 7th Avenues.

The Center is also used for Adult Education, the Music Ministry and other Church affiliated groups.  The building is found immediately to the left of St. Francis Church through a short passageway next to the church.

PLEASE NOTE:  The dates and times of the meetings listed are subject to change.  Please consult the schedule posted in the St. Francis Center and at the information desk in the St. Francis House.
