10:00am–12:00pm EST

Workshop Description:

The first order of business is to congratulate you on taking the hardest, most important step towards discovering the truest version of you and living the life of your dreams!


Sounds dramatic, but it is so very true. The rest of the work really is easier than making that decision to put down whatever has been anchoring you in the dark.


If you have recently decided that whatever substance you are using for your solution to all your problems, whether that be alcohol, drugs, sex, food, gambling, codependency or anything else that takes you away from the present moment, then this free, virtual workshop is for you.


With topics ranging from Sponsors vs. Support Groups to Types of Meetings and How-U Participate Matters, you’ll walk away from this workshop feeling empowered because you will feel more in control to recover the way that works best for you.


With the graciousness of hindsight sprinkled with a ton of empathy, Angela is eager to share her experience and lend a hand to those who have said, “Enough is enough! My way just isn’t working anymore!”


All you need to participate is a true desire to put down the substance or change the behavior that is holding you down, and a computer or smartphone with wifi connection.


We are here to be your emotional safety net. Also, a notebook and pen would be great so you can jot down any nuggets that inspire you.


For the sake of protecting everyone’s privacy, this workshop will not be recorded nor will the names and images of the attendees be made public. This is a safe space.  


UPC Co-Founder Angela DiMarco has been clean and sober since March 9, 2010. Even though it has been a hot minute since she put down the drugs and booze, the memories of those early weeks are very vivid.

This workshop is for you if…

  • You want to feel more empowered to recover from substance abuse the way that works best for YOU.

  • You have committed to yourself and are ready to build your new life.

  • You have taken the first step(s) towards this commitment but are unclear and maybe even a little scared about what’s next.

  • You desire to engage with those with similar experiences and uplift and support one another for what lies ahead.

  • You understand that you are more than just an alcoholic, addict, over-eater or whatever label that has been placed upon you, and you are ready to discover what exactly that is.

If you are in a dire situation, we highly recommend that you reach out to your local AA, NA, or another other Anonymous group in your area, or find a local rehab facility to help you safely detox.
