Being of Service in OSPA

Being of service is one of the most important tools in our recovery program. Making a service commitment keeps us coming back and helps us to remain abstinent and grow in recovery.

Service can include attending weekly OSPA recovery meetings, attending business meetings, holding a meeting service position such as Meeting Moderator (adds people to the Skype calls), Meeting Leader, Secretary, or Treasurer, or reaching out to newcomers for encouragement and support. Service may also include being a Sponsor and a Sponsee.

OSPA Business Meetings

Each OSPA recovery meeting holds a business meeting to suggest meeting changes and vote on motions to support the meeting.

Ask at your weekly recovery meeting for the date and time of that meeting's next business meeting.

OSPA Intergroup Meetings

OSPA members from individual recovery meetings meet at an Intergroup meeting to give updates about their meeting and discuss ideas to support the OSPA fellowship as a whole.

Ask at your weekly recovery meeting for the date and time of the OSPA Intergroup Meeting.
