The InRecovery ACA Intergroup is presenting another opportunity for fellowship in an atmosphere of mutual respect on Saturday, March 16th at 1pm at the Fairbanks Recovery Center, 8102 Clearvista Pkwy Room #158, Indianapolis, IN 46256. (See flyer here) An excerpt from “The Journey” by Claudia B:
- It is safe to take time to play today. Play fuels your creativity, tickles your Inner Child, and nurtures your soul.
- As ACA becomes a safe place for you, you will find freedom to express all the hurts and fears you have kept inside and to free yourself from the shame and blame that are carryovers from the past.

Ready Set GO!! Meetings are closed ACA meetings for introducing the ACA 12 Steps and the ACA program over a four week period. Ready Set GO!! is for newer ACA members to become acquainted with the ACA Twelve Steps. RSG is good preparation to do the ACA 12 Step Workbook when a member feels ready. The experienced member may like to refresh their recovery.
The material is taken from our Big Red Book and our ACA 12 Step Workbook. It requires those in attendance to listen to the material with an open mind and an open heart and in good faith with a desire to learn about ACA recovery. Ready Set GO!! can be taken over and over again to get more out of it.
Requests will be made to volunteer to be a Sharing Partners for the 4 weeks.
Go to westgreatlakesaca.org to get the material for the meetings. Click on RSG materials.
If you choose to join the online meeting you will not need to print out any material. RSG will be displayed on screen sharing. If you choose to printout only print pages 25 through 107 for the RSG meetings. If you have no computer and cannot view the material you will be OK just listening. When the material is no longer available on the West Great Lakes ACA IG website just email Toni at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive the link with all the material.
