No in person classes are being held at the Indio or Palm Springs offices. We are continuing to see intakes in person AND via telehealth (Zoom). We have also started telehealth Group and Education classes!
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 call our office and we will send via Adobe Sign)
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.
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 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.
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 The Awareness Program and we will enter your self-help meeting attendance.
