Thursday – 7:00 pm

Westminster Presbyterian Church

2000 Oakwood Dr. Medford, OR 97504

Leader: Tom G.


When driving to the meeting place, enter the parking lot off Groveland Avenue.  The meeting is held in the Scout Building located in left corner of parking lot.

The Medford Thursday night meeting first opened in 2002.  The leader, Tom G., has been the facilitator since 2008. Tom started his work in Recovery in 2000, and attending meetings regularly in 2005.  The former leader, Tom L., still attends, and serves as Assistant Leader. Tom has been involved in Recovery since the mid-1970s. He is currently serving NW Area #150 as Treasurer, where his outstanding business skills are much appreciated. His service work benefits RI groups in Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Montana.

This meeting is an example of how the Recovery Method is successfully transferred from leader to leader down through the years. Each new leader benefits from the experiences and mastery of skills of the previous leader, and if they are lucky, other members who have consistently been coming will help support the new leader during times of transition. Although Dr. Low’s methods and practices have been operating in a standardized manner for more than 75 years, Recovery as an organization has gone through many phases and changes of corporate leadership.

That is often the case of individuals who stick with Recovery as they go through phases and changes in their personal lives. Dr. Low’s spotting tool of “Phasic, not Basic” would seem to apply here. Life is a watercourse way, and our sense of well-being often goes through phases, like a running stream. As nervous persons, we may go through periods where we are restless, self-conscious, confused or even overwhelmed by fears, tempers and symptoms. Then other times we gain self-confidence through self-help and go through a phase of we feel better, and smile a great deal about the changes we’ve seen happen in our lives. Dr. Low’s theory about how to keeping a consistent program going as we pass through these phases is:

  1. Study his writings;

  2. Practice spotting skills consistently and when you seem to need them most; and

  3. Attend meetings regularly, and as often as you need them.

You may live in a city like Medford where there is only one weekly meeting you can attend, but don’t forget to check the corporate website ( for information about telephone and online meetings. Keep checking back periodically here, at, for updates, blogs, and announcements about meetings and seminars near you. And don’t forget, if you travel on vacation or for business, you can find Recovery meetings in cities throughout the country and abroad.

Tom G. invites newcomers who suffer from emotional or mental challenges, sleeplessness, restlessness, being tired all the time, inability to concentrate, overwhelming tenseness, panicky feelings, shortness of breath, sweats, trembling sensations, confusion or overwhelming feelings of anger, resentment and isolation. Recovery practitioners soon find a sense of peace in their lives with a return to self-leadership and a basic sense of being in control. For more information, contact Tom G. at: 541-621-7976;
