Welcome to Austin LifeRing

LifeRing is a network of people who support one another in living free of alcohol and other non-medically indicated addictive drugs. LifeRing meetings, in person and online, are friendly, confidential, non-judgmental gatherings of peers. The atmosphere is relaxed, practical, and positive. LifeRing members believe that complete abstinence from alcohol and other non-medically indicated drugs is the necessary foundation for us to lead a better life. The desire to stop drinking/using is the only requirement for membership in LifeRing.

In LifeRing meetings, your religious and spiritual beliefs, or lack of them, remain a private matter. There is no religious or anti-religious content in the meeting process. LifeRing does not require participants to follow any particular steps or guidelines, other than staying clean and sober. Each participant builds a personal recovery program tailored to their individual needs. Our meeting format and literature provide a structure for this project.
