The West Hollywood Recovery Center and Log Cabin (WHRC) is hosting its annual 12 Step Marathon Meetings during the holidays to provide a safe space for those in recovery who struggle during this time of year and for those who want to be of service and share a positive message on recovery. The continuous 12-Step meetings will take place at the Log Cabin located at 621 N Robertson Blvd on the Christmas and New Year holidays.
The WHRC Marathon 12 Step Meeting schedule for this year is as follows:
- Christmas Eve – Saturday, December 24, 2022, 7pm – Midnight
- Christmas Day – Sunday, December 25, 2022, 12pm – 6pm
- New Year’s Eve – Saturday, December 30, 2022, 7pm – Midnight
- New Year’s Day – Sunday, January 1, 2022 – 12pm – 6pm
The WHRC will provide coffee, tea and pastries during the meetings. Guests are encouraged to bring a dish to share potluck style.
In addition to marathon 12 Step meetings at the WHRC/Log Cabin, the City of West Hollywood is co-sponsoring an alcohol-free New Year’s Eve party to ring in 2023 sans a hangover. “VIBEZ: A Sober New Year Celebration” is organized by the nonprofit organization, The Phoenix, and will take place on the evening of Saturday, December 31, 2022, starting at 9 p.m. and will run until 1 a.m. on Sunday, January 1, 2023 at Plummer Park’s Fiesta Hall, located at 1200 N. Vista Street. There will be an All Recovery Meeting at 8 p.m. followed by the New Year’s Eve celebration starting at 9 p.m.
This year’s celebration will bring hundreds of people together for a fabulous celebration and an alcohol-free midnight toast. The theme of this year’s event is “Astrological Wellness” and there will be drag entertainment, dancing, and light refreshments as well as other fun wellness activities such as tarot and palm readings, psychics, star charting and more! The event will provide a safe space for sober people to celebrate New Year’s Eve with others in recovery, away from the typical substance-heavy events and parties that mark the holiday.
The City of West Hollywood has co-sponsored a New Year’s Eve event since 2014. VIBEZ is a free event. Attendees must be 18 or older to attend. Advance RSVP is encouraged, as Plummer Park’s Fiesta Hall has limited capacity. RSVP at https://tinyurl.com/2hvdd4cc.
Attendees are encouraged to be respectful of the neighboring residential area when arriving and leaving the event. Limited parking is available in both the north (N. Vista Avenue entrance near Fountain Avenue) and south (Santa Monica Boulevard entrance) parking lots at Plummer Park.
