There is a lot of information out there on the Coronavirus. Unfortunately, we see too much bad advice being given on social media by unqualified resources. We are striving to provide resources for the best information on sober homes in West Palm Beach. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is probably the best resource when there is a pandemic. Here are some recommendations on the Coronavirus;
- Frequently and vigorously wash your hands (15 times a day).
- Regularly use alcohol based (%60 minimum) hand sanitizers.
- Avoid touch your eyes, nose, mouth and face.

Places to Access to 12-step Online Meetings
At the core of Edna’s women’s sober livings West Palm Beach, Florida is the 12-step teachings and way of life. During this time of national isolation and social distancing attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings is scary. They are more than just support groups, but a way of life for many.
It’s highly recommended that alternative measures be taken to continue these vital meetings. The American Society of Addiction Medicine lists many on-line resources for 12-step meetings including Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). These meetings play a vital role for many in recovery. They are a lifeline for individuals early in recovery as well as individuals in long-term recovery.
There are many struggling to find 12-step meetings on-line. The Coronavirus is forcing many trying to maintain sobriety to take in on-line meetings. A break from these important meanings could mean relapse for some.
