Reports to: Director of Operations

An ARCNH Group Facilitator organizes, leads and promotes a structured group recovery program. Some examples of a facilitated group program include SMART Recovery and Women For Sobriety.

ARCNH is also open to accepting self developed group programming so long as the facilitator can provide ARCNH with a written program plan. If no such program plan exists, ARCNH can assist in development of the program plan.

ARCNH welcomes 12 step programs and other self-supporting, member facilitated programs. Facilitation of these programs is not considered a volunteer position with ARCNH as it would be a violation of that programs traditions or principles. Individuals seeking to begin a group at ARCNH should contact us at to request usage of the meeting room.
