Wellness Empowerment meetings were designed specifically to meet the needs of the local SWC alumni members who expressed interest and desire to participate in a support group in contrast to the old meeting paradigm.
The WE meeting was developed as a departure from the traditional 12-step model. Springfield Wellness Center wants to provide a safe, trusting environment for alumni to meet as a group for the personal benefits that come from group participation, such as social / emotional support, building of hope and confidence, and the exchange of ideas and energy. There is strength in numbers!
Meetings are held from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays during each treatment rotation throughout the year. Alone, I can do so little; together, WE can do so much.
