Group Conscience

We Do Recover

Group Conscience is a term commonly used in addiction treatment and recovery communities. It refers to the collective decision-making process within a group. In this context, the group consists of individuals who are seeking help for their addiction and are working together towards recovery.

Group Conscience allows individuals in recovery to have a voice and actively participate in the decision-making process. It encourages open and honest communication among group members, allowing them to express their thoughts and feelings without judgment.

By practicing Group Conscience, individuals in recovery gain a sense of empowerment and ownership in their treatment journey. They work collaboratively with their peers and treatment professionals to establish guidelines, rules, and expectations that support their common goal of sobriety.

The roots of the concept of Group Conscience can be traced back to the formation of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) in the 1930s. AA introduced the idea of group decision-making and recognized that the collective wisdom of the group could guide individuals towards recovery. Since then, Group Conscience has become a fundamental principle in addiction treatment and recovery programs worldwide. Group conscience is a process which Alcoholics Anonymous uses to determine how decisions can affect the members of a 12 step group as a whole. Each individual has the opportunity to vote about the things that affect them or their friendships.

In Group Conscience meetings, individuals are encouraged to share their personal experiences, insights, and suggestions regarding various issues affecting the group. These meetings create unity and promote a sense of community among participants, as they collectively work towards maintaining a supportive and recovery-oriented environment.

The decision-making process within the Group Conscience framework is typically guided by respectful dialogue and consensus-building. It ensures that decisions made reflect the common values and goals of the entire group rather than relying on the views of a few individuals.
