Loyola Hooper Format
Hi, I’m Mike an alcoholic, and a member of The Loyola Group. Portland long ago got rid of the drunk tank in our jails. Now people who need detoxification and an introduction to Recovery, go to the Hooper Detox Center, appropriately named for the last person to die in the old drunk tank. Members of our AA group are actively involved in helping to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to those of us who still suffer.

We’d like to share with you just how we do it. The format that we follow in our twice a week meetings at the Hooper Facility is shown to the left if you care to see. Looking at it will show you that our goals are fairly simple and very focused: introduce and welcome them to AA and help them make a plan on what they are going to do when they leave Detox. Our meeting with them is far from traditional, but we are finding that it is working.
