What is the Animas Alano Club?
Meeting Space for 12-step Recovery Groups
The Animas Alano Club in and of itself is not a 12-step program nor an addiction recovery center; but home to many different recovery-based programs and groups via rental agreements, thereby acting as landlord to those individual groups. The Club serves its purpose by providing an outwardly healthy environment, a venue that is conducive to recovery, a physical location where each group can hold its meetings that allows for fellowship activities before, after, and in between those meetings.
Venue for Social and Recreational Activities
One critical challenge facing those in recovery is that they must not only change their past behaviors, but they must also establish an almost entirely new network of friends thereby embracing a new way of life. The Club's goal is to provide a healthy environment to sober, clean, and recovering individuals who are on the path to well-being where they can socialize, learn from each other, attend meetings, participate in group and family functions, and grow together.
Meeting Space for 12-step Mentorship
There is plenty of private and semi-private space available at the Animas Alano Club where sponsors and sponsees can meet. It doesn't matter whether they're simply catching up over a cup of coffee or getting together for another heavy duty step-working session, there is ample space for Club members to work with others according to the 12th step of their recovery-based program.
