Al-Anon is a worldwide organization that offers a program of recovery for families and friends of alcoholics, whether or not the alcoholic seeks help or even recognizes the existence of a drinking problem. Members give and receive comfort and understanding through sharing experience, strength and hope.
No dues or fees. No appointments - walk in and attend a meeting. See website for meeting information.
The primary purpose of Mid-Shore Intergroup is to be sure help is available when a still-suffering alcoholic requests it. Sometimes a person will call for information, and sometimes they just show up. Like the regular A.A. groups, our primary purpose is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous.
The only requirement of membership is the desire to stop drinking. No dues or fees.

FRESH START is a nonprofit Transitional Supportive Housing program for people recovering from substance abuse addiction. Our goal is to provide (beginning in the summer of 2009), in the mid-shore area, a stable housing environment complemented by aggressive case management to assist the residents in achieving sobriety, independence and self-sufficiency with enhanced possibilities for future success.
Individuals in the early stage of substance abuse recovery often encounter multiple problems which may impede their efforts to remain clean and sober. In addition to the addiction itself, there are often housing, employment, legal, and family problems.
Support in areas such as housing, jobs, and appropriate emotional and social skills contributes to a greater likelihood that the recovering individual will remain clean and sober over the long term. The Fresh Start Program provides the Mid-shore area with a transitional supportive housing program for persons who have completed a drug and/or alcohol treatment program.
Mid-Shore Restoring HOPE in Women will provide the network resources to get help from addiction. Afterwards we will provide GED, Job Training, Celebrate Recovery Programs, Counseling, Sponsorship and a Loving Church Family.
We offer recovery from the effects of addiction through working a twelve-step program, including regular attendance at group meetings. The group atmosphere provides help from peers and offers an ongoing support network for addicts who wish to pursue and maintain a drug-free lifestyle. Our name, Narcotics Anonymous, is not meant to imply a focus on any particular drug; NA’s approach makes no distinction between drugs including alcohol. Membership is free, and we have no affiliation with any organizations outside of NA including governments, religions, law enforcement groups, or medical and psychiatric associations.
Rising Above Disease (RAD) is a non-profit dedicated to assisting and encouraging women on their journey in recovery from addiction. Our mission is to help them improve their lives using the resources and guidance from our community.
We provide the most basic of human needs, a roof over their heads, a comfortable bed, a clean shower and the comfort of other women who want to help. We provide assistance in obtaining medical care, dental care and mental health services. We assist our residents in the overwhelming tasks of straightening out the unmanageability of their lives. The bank, the DMV and the Social Security office are often scary places for a confused woman in early recovery. We walk side by side with these women, as we empower them to manage the details of their lives. These simple skills, that many of us take for granted, could be the deal-breaker that drives a woman back to her previous lifestyle. Guidance and support also offered.
