Support Groups

Ascension Lutheran Church hosts several recovery groups for the Thousand Oaks area.

Although we are not affiliated with the groups and cannot provide specific contact information regarding their meetings, each group welcomes new attendees and would be happy for you to join them for their scheduled meetings. Check our Calendar for the latest information.



A mutual aid organization for people who have been impacted by another person’s alcoholism.

Saturdays, 10 AM


Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA)

Adult Children of Alcoholics is an anonymous Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition program of women and men who grew up in an alcoholic, or otherwise dysfunctional home. They meet with each other in a mutually respectful, safe environment and acknowledge their common experiences. They discover how childhood affected them in the past and influences them in the present and take positive action.

Groups meet Saturdays, 1 PM; Sundays, 3 PM; and Mondays, 6 PM in the Bethlehem Room in our office building


CoDependents Anonymous (CoDA)

Co-Dependents Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women whose common purpose is to develop healthy relationships. They gather together to support and share with each other in a journey of self-discovery — learning to love the self. Living the program allows each of them to become increasingly honest with themselves about their personal histories and their own codependent behaviors. They rely upon the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions for knowledge and wisdom.

Meets Fridays, 7:30 PM, in the Bethlehem Room.
