Perhaps most importantly, what place does it have in the furry community?

Recovery And Sobriety In The Fandom

Hosted by Obreeon

This panel is a safe and confidential space to gain support and networking with others in recovery and sobriety as well as to share the experience, strength, and hope associated with maintaining a healthy lifestyle in the fandom.

The meeting is open to anyone, however strict anonymity will be enforced. The doors will be physically closed to protect those attending, but our hearts are open. We ask that phones not be used at any time in the meeting space. This panel is in no way associated with any formal recovery or 12 step based organizations, and no literature will be present.
