Café RE is the private online confidential community! Get accountable and be the best version of you.
What is the Recovery Elevator Community?
Café RE is the private Recovery Elevator community of like minded individuals who are working together to achieve a new life. Quitting drinking alone is nearly impossible, but when surrounded by others who seek the same goal, you’re giving yourself a chance.
As I stated in the video, it seemed as if I was the only person on this planet with a drinking problem. One July evening in the summer of 2014, at 1:55am I desperately searched for an online community, hoping to find something like Café RE. Unfortunately, I didn’t find a community, but I did find a Bud Light Lime advertisement on Facebook, and guess what I was drinking moments after.
This disease and addiction led me to a failed suicide attempt in 2014. What I now realize, is I’m lucky: I survived. Alcohol and the stigma surrounding alcoholism claims over 3 million lives worldwide each year. My sobriety date is September 7th, 2014 and I don’t plan on going back,
You’re never alone
With technology today, you can connect with others across the globe instantly with a smart phone. Members have access to the private non searchable Facebook group where you will find support and accountability from others who share the same vision of a better life. This disease will do its best to convince you that you can do this on your own, but take me from me, that is a tough road to go down.
New Accountability Program
Members can choose to be paired with an accountability partner based on their sobriety date, age, and geographic location. We have found that the more accountability you create; the better chance you have of getting sober. If you don’t feel your assigned partner is not the best fit, no problem, we will get you a new accountability partner.
Here is what you can expect to see
Meet-ups and retreats
With several meet-ups and retreats in the books, it’s safe to say these events are magical. Don’t just connect via the web, but meet in person and continue the conversation face to face. Members of the Café RE community can attend exclusive regional meet-ups, the national meet-up, retreats and all of the online webinars. These events are exclusively for Café RE members only.
This may be the first book club where we actually read the book and don’t drink wine. Participate in active monthly discussions about the book which are sometimes attended by the author who wrote the book.
Discounts and priority registration
For retreats and other events open to the Recovery Elevator audience, Café RE members get priority early bird registration times with discounts. Save up to $100-$300 on events and reserve your spot before others are allowed to register.
Attend and participate in private online webinars with industry professionals such as addiction counselors, therapists, dieticians, doctors, psychiatrists, recovery coaches, authors and more.
It’s tough to put a price on something that has the potential to improve every aspect of your life. Currently, access to this community is only $14 per month. Once you register, you’re locked in at your price. In the future, our price may increase, but for new members only.
If you decide this isn’t for you, not a problem. Email email@example.com and we will cancel the subscription.
Okay, this sounds great, but I’ve got some questions…
What does the monthly subscription give me access to?
Great question, but in order for this life transformation to take place, a shift of thinking needs to occur. The question should be, what can I give to this community, instead of what can I take from the community. In short, you are getting access to an incredible online community with others who have been successful in their goal to quit drinking. Members have access to the exclusive, non-searchable, Facebook group where they can connect daily with other like-minded individuals from all over the world at any time of the day. Members gain access to the accountability program. Being part of this community gives you access to online meet-ups and webinars.
Why is there a charge to be a part of this community? Alcoholics Anonymous is free!
Recovery Elevator is not affiliated with any 12 step programs. We feel there is tremendous value in something that can positively change the course of a life. In all honesty, we feel this incredible private community is undervalued and the price may increase in the future, but for now, it’s $14 a month. That’s less than one night of drinking; much less.
I really want to join this community, but I can’t afford it. Does this mean I can’t join?
Absolutely not. Anonymous scholarships are available for those who cannot cover the monthly cost. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Do I have to choose between a 12 step program and Café RE?
Definitely not. Café RE is a private confidential community and not a program. Café RE another resource to put into your recovery portfolio. Many Café RE members attend 12 step meetings and are part of the Café RE private community.
How can I pay?
You can pay online with any major credit/debit card.
When is the amount deducted from my bank account?
The charge should post within 1-3 days depending on your bank and your next payment will be made exactly one month after your initial payment. Monthly payments will be made until the subscription is canceled.
What if I change my mind? Can I cancel?
You can cancel at any time. When you sign up, you will be sent an email with a link to your dashboard where you can cancel. Or feel free to email email@example.com to cancel. Please let us know why you have decided to cancel so we can make improvements if need be.
I don’t live in the United States – Is there a cheaper rate since I probably won’t be able to attend the in-person meet-ups?
Of course! Here is the link for the $85 per year rate. In the future, we are hoping to have meet-ups and retreats across the globe, but that this moment, the majority of them take place in the US.
Why is the lifetime membership no longer available?
In 2009, I was part of a gym I rarely attended, but sure enough, after I saw that $34 monthly charge on my bank statement, it got my butt back into the gym; at least for a few days. A monthly fee on a bank statement is an affirmation I hope
I relapsed after one week in the RE Community. Can I get a refund?
First off, we’re sorry to hear about your relapse. However, we do not give refunds based on relapsing but you can cancel at any time.
What if my accountability partner isn’t a good match, or I haven’t heard from them?
Be patient, as it may take time to get a response. If you haven’t heard from your assigned partner within 4-5 days, then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be set up with a new partner.
Are there any Terms and Conditions that I can read before signing up?
Absolutely. They are linked below
I did an interview on the Recovery Elevator podcast and I haven’t seen my check in the mail.
The Recovery Elevator podcast is free. I also haven’t seen my check in the mail because again, this podcast is free.
What does ‘non-searchable’ Facebook page really mean?
This means that there is absolutely no way anyone can see who is in the group or what has been posted unless they are a member.
How regularly will the meet-ups occur? How will I hear about them? How will the decision be reached regarding where they will be held?
At this moment, we don’t know how often they will occur, but we are hoping for 3-4 regional meet-ups, 1 national meet-up, and 1 retreat in a given year.
How often will the Sober Travel events be organized? How will I hear about them? How will the decision be reached regarding where they will be held?
