Monthly Alumni Birthday and Speaker Meeting
Fresh Start Alumni holds their member meetings every 3rd Tuesday of the month 7:30 PM. This meeting is now Hybrid. We are in person at the John Muir Concord Medical Center in Concord Room 1 &2. This is a one hour meeting where we feature a guest speaker and celebrate milestone birthdays with fellowship and sobriety chips.
We can relate to the hard work it takes in early recovery and understand every month maintaining sobriety in the first 365 days is a huge achievement! We recognize our members starting with the first 24 hours, and every month in the first year of being clean and sober.
The Zoom meeting invitation is automatically shared once you sign up to become a FSA member. In order to receive a sobriety chip in the mail, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and the sobriety milestone you celebrated.
Fresh Start Alumni Monthly Board Meeting

FSA Sponsored Group Meetings
Fresh Start Alumni sponsors several group meetings for recovery-related topics that are unique from other recovery programs and organizations. We help facilitate meeting locale and extend insurance to the groups. Each group function autonomously, is responsible for its format and rules, and needs only to comply with a code-of-conduct agreement.
