    West Hollywood Recovery Center to Host 12-Step Marathon Meetings for the Holidays

    The West Hollywood Recovery Center (WHRC) will be hosting its annual marathon meetings this Christmas Eve/Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day to provide a space for those in recovery who may need a safe space to spend the holidays, or to those who don’t celebrate the holidays, but wish to fellowship in clean (from drugs) and sober environment.

    The marathon meetings have normally taken place at the West Hollywood Log Cabin, however, this year, they will run at the Werle building located at 626 N Robertson Blvd in Room 2.

    The marathon meeting schedule is as follows:

    • Sunday, December 24, 2023 (Christmas Eve) – 7 p.m. – Midnight
    • Monday – December 25, 2023 (Christmas Day) – 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.
    • Sunday – December 31, 2023 (New Year’s Eve) – 7 p.m. – Midnight
    • Monday, January 1, 2023 (New Year’s Day) – 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

    In addition to the marathon meetings, there will also be a 12-step related Meditation Beginner’s Yoga on Sunday, December 24, from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. with Joanna. The yoga class will take place before the marathon meetings start.

    For many years the West Hollywood Recovery Center has been hosting marathon meetings during the holidays as it tends to be a hard time of the year for people in recovery. Coffee and other light snacks will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring treats or dishes to share.

    Parking restrictions will be lifted during the Christmas and New Year holidays. There will be plenty of parking at the West Hollywood Park Parking Structure.

    Another sober event taking place in West Hollywood VIBEZ: A Sober New Year Celebration, the city’s premier alcohol and drug-free New Year’s Eve experience. Co-sponsored by the City of West Hollywood and organized by The Phoenix and the Institute for Public Strategies (IPS), this year’s VIBEZ celebration will bring hundreds of people together for a fabulous celebration and a sober midnight toast.

    IBEZ: A Sober New Year Celebration will take place on the evening of Sunday, December 31, 2023 beginning at 8:30 p.m. and it will run until 12:30 a.m. on Monday, January 1, 2024, at Fiesta Hall at Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard. VIBEZ is free and open to attendees 18 or older. Advance RSVP is encouraged, due to limited capacity. RSVP at https://tinyurl.com/2xbeznxu.
