Welcome to the Recovery International (RI) Telephone Meeting Program, whether you are new to the RI Method or a long-time participant.
Telephone meetings are convenient and also serve those who are unable to attend community-based meetings due to distance, illness or other challenges.
Newcomers attend a FREE 6-session training course to learn the RI Self-Help Method through explanation, demonstration, and practice. Each session is 90 minutes long. Attendee participation is encouraged and meetings include a question and answer period. For further information or to register for the Training Series please contact Gilda (352-464-7232)
Literature meetings focus on reading and discussing the works of Dr. Abraham Low, founder of Recovery. This meeting is also useful for people with visual impairment or those who are reading challenged. See current schedule below.

- You will have an opportunity to ask questions or make comments at the end of the meeting.
- We don’t discuss politics, sex, religion, or legal issues in our meetings.
