(UK only) Zoom Recovery Groups – KEYS Community Detox
Every Tuesday at 7:30pm via Zoom
THE MEETING WILL OPEN FROM 7:15 AND USUALLY RUN UNTIL 9PM.
KEYS have launched this group in response to the need for remote support in light of COVID-19, as a way of giving recovery support to those who cannot access KEYS Centres. This allows those from across the UK to access a safe, loving community of Christian addiction support, and receive the help that KEYS has to offer such as remote spiritual support and prayer ministry and help with recovery planning. Like all KEYS Recovery Groups, the National group is based off of a Christian adapted 12-Step Programme. Register here for the call.
