SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery

2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month : 6:00pm - 7:30pm

SMART stands for Self Management And Recovery Training. This program helps individuals gain independence from an addiction to either a substance or activity. If you are receiving medication assisted treatment, struggling with addiction, or in early or long term recovery, then this program is for you.

This is NOT a 12 step program, but all recovery pathways are welcome.
Instead, this program advocates for individual choice based on teaching four points: 

1. Building, enhancing, or maintaining motivation to abstain.

2. Coping with urges. 

3. Managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

4. Balancing momentary and enduring satisfactions.

Open to the public, drop-ins welcome, 18+

Community Meeting

Family, Community,
& Recovery Meeting

1st  Thursday & 3rd Monday of every month : 7:00pm - 9:00pm

COPE's FCR meetings are a support group style meeting for families, friends, and community members affected by addiction to learn more about addiction and how they can help themselves or their loved ones with recovery. It is also an opportunity for someone with lived drug use/addiction/recovery experience to receive community and peer support. Abstinence or recovery is not required to attend. 

Due to the nature of the topic, we like to keep the room 18+ but can make exceptions for someone who is younger depending on the circumstances. 

For accommodation requests or any questions, or to speak with the facilitator beforehand to get a feel for the group and how it may benefit you, contact Nancy at 269-330-3643.

Dharma Recovery

Sundays: 11:00am - 12:00pm
Thursdays: 5:30 - 6:45pm

Dharma Recovery is a peer-led, grassroots, democratically-structured organization, movement, and community that is unified by our trust in the potential of each of us to recover and find freedom from the suffering of addiction. We believe that recovery means empowerment, and we support each other as partners walking the path of recovery together.


Our program uses the Buddhist practices of meditation, self-inquiry, wisdom, compassion, and community as tools for recovery and healing. We believe that recovery is about finding our own inner wisdom and our own path.


Recovery Dharma welcomes anyone who is looking to heal from addiction and addictive behavior, whether it’s caused by substance use or process addictions like codependency, gambling, eating disorders, relationships, technology, or any obsessive or habitual pattern that creates suffering. We’ve found that this Buddhist-inspired path can lead to liberation from the suffering of addiction, and we support you in finding your own path to recovery

Open to the public, drop-ins welcome, 18+
