What is Service?

Being of Service

“In addition to finding a spiritual way of life, recovery is about changing negative aspects of our personalities into positive ones…”
“…We learned that service is about gratitude and learning how to contribute to our lives and the lives of others…”
** (taken from the
Being of Service” pamphlet)

Why Be of Service? **

• To give back what was so freely
   given to us;

• To take on a commitment as a
   symbolic way of making amends;

• To meet other recovering addicts;

• To learn how to be part of a team;

• To learn humility by doing
   something selfless for someone else;

• To learn skills or teach others what
   we know;

• To learn responsibility.

Monthly group service positions can include:
coffee, setup, greeters, literature rep, newcomer chip, 12-step rep, chairperson, & trusted servants (GSR, treasurer, secretary).
