Marijuana Anonymous Toronto

Group Name: Marijuana Anonymous Toronto

Description: Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using marijuana. There are no dues or fees for membership. We are self-supporting through our own contributions. MA is not affiliated with any religious or secular institution or organization and has no opinion on any outside controversies or causes. Our primary purpose is to stay free of marijuana and to help the marijuana addict who still suffers achieve the same freedom.

Marijuana Anonymous uses the basic 12 Steps of Recovery founded by Alcoholics Anonymous, because it has been proven that the 12 Step Recovery program works! There are no records or files and you need not disclose anything about yourself if you don’t want to. No one will bother you if you do not wish to come back. There are no dues or fees. MA meetings pay their bills through the voluntary contributions of those attending. A basket is passed at each meeting for contributions. Marijuana Anonymous is completely self-supporting.

Where: There are several meetings in Toronto which are open to everyone and others closed only for addicts. Please visit the Toronto locations page for meeting details.

Alpha House Inc

Group Name: Alpha House Inc.

Description: Alpha House is an addiction recovery community addressing the needs of men of ages 18 and upwards. The residents of Alpha House support their recovery through the 12 step recovery program. While the 12 steps were originally a program of recovery fostered by Alcoholics Anonymous, they have been applied successfully to every form of addiction.

Like most 12-step programs, recovery is often found in the form of one alcoholic or addict helping another. In this sense, each resident of Alpha House benefits from the other and, in community, they help one another find a path to sobriety.

The Alpha House program offers a unique blend of guidance and support in areas of the greatest concern to their clients. These include upgrading of one’s education, job searching, life skills, one-on-one counselling, and living within a community and meeting one’s obligations to it. Their facility is staffed 24-hours a day by trained counselors and specialists. The staff facilitates regular meetings and groups through the week.

Alpha House also offers ongoing aftercare for all residents and previous residents. Their doors are always open to past residents in crisis. Alpha House goes beyond 12-step recovery by aiding its residents in fundamental living skills. The nature of the Alpha House Community inherently build skills in how to live in harmony with others, how to shoulder and meet one’s responsibilities, and how to maintain a discipline of recovery in the face of life’s ups and downs.
