it's 2:50 am in CA I had a bad night as you can tell, I got desperate and wanted to find a online meeting for LDS members. I'm finding that there really isn't much support out there for members dealing with addictions. Mine by the way is alcoholism. I'm having to reface my alcoholism it's been five years since I faced it the first time. Does anyone know of any online aa meetings for LDS members or do i need to start one???

Online Meetings    
"First, welcome Ginja! Yes! There are online meeting for lds members- heart-t-heart.org has online meetings every morning for general addiction. They also have phone I have found much healing from attending them- it's wonderful to have them every morning- it starts my day off better. I thought the first meeting I went to was a little weird because I wasn't sure what to expect, so I would suggest attending 2 meetings and then make your decision about if this is what is best for you. One thing I also like about it is that they focus more on Gospel principles that help us to change instead of focusing on the addictions themselves. I know 12step.org has online and phone meetings for specific addictions like aa, but they aren't LDS centered. Many people that I know who attend heart-t-heart.org, also attend meetings through 12step.org. Check it out! Ultimately do what's best for you! There is hope- change is possible because of our Saviour."

Other LDS recovery meetings    
"Ginja,

There is also an LDS Teleconference meeting on Tuesdays at 7:00PM mountain time. The number is 1-877-453-7266 and the meeting ID is 537277. This is listed on the Salt Lake LDS Schedule. You mentioned that there isn’t much support for LDS members in California. Are you aware of the LDS Addiction Recovery Program? The schedules can be found at ldsfamilyservices.org. Click on “Addiction Recovery Program” in the middle of the page and then “Addiction Recovery Support Groups” in the middle of that page. California falls under the North America West area. It looks like there are nine pages with California meetings. Hopefully there are a few close by. The Addiction Recovery Program is one of the Church’s best kept secrets.

Wishing you recovery,
John"

"Nothing is beyond [Christ’s] redeeming reach or His encircling empathy. Therefore, we should not complain about our own life’s not being a rose garden when we remember who wore the crown of thorns! Having bled at every pore, how red His raiment must have been in Gethsemane, how crimson that cloak! No wonder, when Christ comes in power and glory, that He will come in reminding red attire, signifying not only the winepress of wrath, but also to bring to our remembrance how He suffered for each of us in Gethsemane and on Calvary!"

— Neal A. Maxwell

General Conference May 1987
