Very limited in person classes are being held at the Indio and Palm Springs offices, please call us if you would like to attend in person classes. We are continuing to see intakes in person AND via telehealth (Zoom). We are continuing our telehealth Group, Face to Face, and Education classes through the month of June.
If you are coming to the office for in person classes or an office appointment please wear a mask/face-cover and make payment online or with credit card or money order only. We are avoiding cash payments if at all possible. Please also bring your own pen to sign documents with.
Group classes are limited to 15 participants and education sessions are limited to 35 participants. Additional classes will be added as more people sign up.
To attend you will need to return the remote client services form
Please register and pay for all classes at least 48 hours in advance. Payments can be made at https://www.theawarenessgroup.org/pay/
If you need assistance joining a Zoom meeting please see this article.
To join a test meeting to check your speakers, camera, and microphone please visit this page.
We recommend joining the meeting via laptop or tablet. If you must use your phone we recommend you have a stand of some sort–it is very tiring to hold your phone up for two hours. Some participants have a better audio experience using headphones with a built in microphone.

Individuals will be seen first come first served. After registering and paying you will receive the meeting link. The counselor will allow one person into the meeting at a time from the waiting room. Do not be alarmed if you see a screen saying “the host will let you in shortly” this means you are waiting in line and will be seen in the order that you arrived.
If you still need self-help meeting attendance here are two alternatives to in person AA/NA meetings:
Write a 2 paragraph paper on a news article or a one page single spaced report on a documentary (film) pertaining to alcohol, drugs, and/or DUI effects on individuals, families and society. The news article + report can take the place of 1 self-help meeting and the Documentary and report counts as 2 meetings. Completed writing assignments can be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also register at stepchat.com where there are a variety of online 12 step meetings. You will need to make an account. After attending and participating in a meeting you must fill out the “Request Meeting Attendance Confirmation” form. Forward this confirmation to email@example.com and we will enter your self-help meeting attendance.
We thank you for your patience and participation during this time. We look forward to helping you continue making progress toward regaining your driver’s license and achieving other goals.
