Lifering is a not-for-profit network of support groups for people who want to live free of alcohol and other addictive drugs. It was started ten years ago in California by a group of recovering addicts who wanted a self-help approach based on positive social reinforcement. LifeRing works through its group meetings, and is based on three basic priciples: sobriety, secularity and self-help. It does not utilise the 12 step programme and is non-religious in its approach. Thoroughly grounded in proven therapeutic approaches such as CBT and Reality Therapy, among others, LifeRing has also evolved out of the experiences of former addicts themselves.
There are currently meetings in Dublin, Dingle, Mullingar, Navan and Tralee.
