Sharing groups/

classes

Sharing groups offer support in your recovery. Each of our sharing groups is a safe place where you can listen to the experiences of others as well as share your own feelings and concerns, if you'd like. Each group is facilitated by a trained volunteer who has personal experience in the issues on which the group focuses. Our facilitators ensure the group rules are followed by all of the participants so that everyone can have a positive, supportive experience.



Each Recovery At Cokesbury location offers a specific set of sharing groups. Groups at Recovery at Cokesbury Knoxville include:

  • Chemically Dependent Men
  • Chemically Dependent Women
  • Women Conquering Codependency
  • Men Conquering Codependency
  • Family Support
  • Men Seeking Sexual Integrity
  • Women Seeking Sexual Integrity
  • Orientation
  • Precovery (Children ages 5-12) 

These groups do not require registration. 

See the location you're interested in visiting for information about the sharing groups offered at that location.


Guidelines For Sharing Groups

  1. Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings. Please limit your sharing to 3-5 minutes.
  2. There will be no cross talk, please. Cross talk is when two individuals engage in dialogue excluding all others. Each person is free to express his/her feelings without interruption.
  3. We are here to support one another. We will not attempt to "fix" each other.
  4. Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements. What is shared in the group stays in the group!
  5. Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered recovery group.

Other Registered Classes at Recovery at Cokesbury



Anger Management

Not currently offered.

Anger is a perfectly natural and a common emotion. It can be experienced via mild irritation, furious rage or can be internalized and come out as depression. What is important is not the occurrence of anger, but it's management.


Search for Significance

Not currently offered. Please call the office at 865.246.0449 if you have any questions about this or other classes.


Experiencing God

Not currently offered.


Boundaries Class

Not currently offered. Do you need to learn how to say not without feeling guilty? Do you wonder when it's okay to say yes? Are you a nice liar but a mean honest person? Is anger the primary boundary you use? If you said yes to any of these questions, Boundaries is a great resource for you!


Beyond Boundaries

Not currently offered.


Women Seeking Sexual Integrity

This has transitioned into one of our regular Open Share Groups. It is offered for women who struggle with serial dating, love addiction, pornography and other sexual addiction issues.
