If you would wish to start your own PoSA support group meeting, we offer free downloadable materials for you to get started.
We understand that when trauma first strikes, it may be easiest to go join support where it already exists, that creating your own group is more challenging. We list those groups in Resources (see: Recovery Organizations).
If you are new to Discovery and still reeling from the pain, we would encourage you to first get some local therapy or contact us here for some one-on-one sessions to help you stabilize and begin your healing process before undertaking the formation of a new Group.
Once stabilized, if you live in an area with no support groups that fit your needs, you might do well to create your own PoSA group. The same would be true if you are offended by the co-addict model, which is currently in use at 12-step partner-oriented meetings.
Here are some guidelines we suggest using to get started:

Enjoy the strength, hope and support that grows through sharing in these groups. What a blessing to be able to give and receive the care and support we have suffered without having for far too long!
