What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Alcoholism and addiction are problems that the city of Anchorage is struggling to address. By providing meeting space and facilities for social interaction our club helps to address this pressing need for recovery for the addict and alcoholic. The Dry Dock of Anchorage provides meeting space for 37 recovery meetings every week of the year. In addition, the Dry Dock provides a safe and welcoming place for over 900 recovering persons each week to come and socialize, relax or drink a cup of coffee from 8:30 am to 11:00 pm every day of the year. Many social events are scheduled each year for the addict and alcoholic in recovery and many of the meetings provide a safe area for mothers to bring their children while they attend a recovery meeting.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of the Dry Dock of Anchorage is to provide a safe and welcoming location for individuals and groups in recovery from alcoholism and addiction. We aim to provide a space that is welcoming, that is safe, that is conducive to achieving and maintaining recovery. We aim to provide space to groups in recovery from alcoholism, drug addiction and sex addiction. We also aim to provide a safe space for individuals to visit during the day that is a clean and sober environment.

To provide a space for groups of recovery the Dry Dock of Anchorage maintains a rented facility that consists of 2 rooms that recovery meetings can be held. The larger meeting room which is used by the majority of groups can hold up to 85 individuals and our smaller room seats up to 14. We also provide a kitchen and common room (lounge) for social events and for individuals to watch TV or relax with others in recovery. For each group we provide meeting space, secure storage and promotion on our website.

We also provide multiple social events including 3 cookouts, 3 holiday dinners and misc social events throughout the year.

The Dry Dock also provides Alcothons during the holidays which are around the clock meetings for those in recovery who would like to go to a meeting during stressful holiday periods. We provide these during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve.

The Dry Dock of Anchorage's capabilities for meeting our goals consist of 35 years of organizational history, a very capable board of 7 group members in recovery. We have a budget of approximately $45,000 and we have an adequate board designated reserve account. We are financially stable and had a budget surplus in 2019.

The Dry Dock of Anchorage has many volunteers to assist on major projects and events and has the support of over 25 paying members who usually donate each month.

The Dry Dock of Anchorage provided a meeting and social interaction space to over 60,000 recovering alcoholics and addicts in 2017. We provide a safe and comfortable meeting space to 12 unique groups per week that meet 70 times per week total.
