NEWS & EVENTS
Memorial Day – The LCL office will be closed on Memorial Day and the AA meeting will not be held.
This is a time to remember those who have served. We extend our gratitude to you for your service – to our country, on behalf of LCL and in any other way, and honor the memory of those we have lost.
Long holiday weekends can be difficult for people in recovery. You may face triggers you haven’t experienced in a while. Some of us are around others who drink; this can increase cravings. Others have no family and isolate. Gatherings can be tough; isolating can trigger depressive feelings. Sometimes it’s helpful to plan extra strategies to follow your program. Remember your exit plan if something isn’t working for you.
LCL’s counseling partner, The Sand Creek Group, provides someone to talk to 24/7, including on holidays. You may reach them directly at 651-430-3383. Just say you were referred by Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers. Their website, www.sandcreekeap.com, provides many articles and resources on a variety of topics.
