A meeting is a gathering of two or more clutterers who come together to share experience, strength and hope so that they may solve their common problem and help each other to recover. All meetings are guided by and follow the 12 Traditions. Meetings are usually held once a week and run from an hour to an hour and a half. Please respect the confidentiality and anonymity of all members inside and outside of the meetings.
Meetings provide a safe environment of acceptance and encouragement for learning how to apply the 12 Steps in our lives and also how to live one day at a time. Although each group within CLA is autonomous, meetings typically consist of readings from Fellowship-approved literature and sharing openly how the 12 Steps have moved us toward recovery. In addition, meetings provide many opportunities for learning how to reach out and to serve other clutterers and our Fellowship as a whole.
If you can’t find a face-to-face meeting in your area, consider starting one. Or attend a telephone meeting, a great resource when there are no local face-to-face meetings or you are unable to leave your home.
There are no dues or fees. Groups are self-supporting from voluntary contributions of their members. Members are encouraged to donate generously at every meeting or by mail or online.
