Club 12 is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation whose primary purpose is to maintain a permanent facility to support the work of the 12 step recovery programs of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous and more. While not affiliated with these programs, Club 12 was formed during the summer of 2005 to provide individual 12 step recovery groups such as these with a reliable clean and secure place to hold their meetings free from landlord schedules. In addition, Club 12 provides meeting space for individual groups to hold special events such as educational workshops, conferences and book studies.
Along with the above mentioned special events Club 12 provides space for family groups like Al-Anon and Nar-Anon to hold their meetings. Family events such as anniversary dinners, birthday parties and drug and alcohol free holiday dances are held with minimal scheduling conflict.
The disease of addiction isolates both the sufferer and their loved ones. Fortunately this can be overcome with proper treatment. By increasing access to recovery services the costly toll on society and the burden it places on families can be reduced. It has been proven that the most effective treatment for alcoholism, drug addiction and compulsive gambling involves peer counseling – one survivor talking to another. Full time access for these 12 step recovery programs along with a regular site for group and family fellowship improves the success in providing hope for these sufferers and their families.
We also recognize the opportunity that an organization such as ours has for the creation of a social and service network in the community. Club 12 has a number of committees and subcommittees including Operations, Buildings and Grounds, Membership, Fundraising and Tri-County Liaison which help to promote the building of better citizenship and leadership through the development of character among the membership towards the community.
We hope you agree with our endeavor and find it in your selves to help us provide these services for many years into our future, your future and the future of our community.
