    • CDRC Is Ready To Welcome You Back - A Message from the President of CDRC

      To All who previously used CDRC as a place for your meeting and haven’t returned yet due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve missed you! As I have spoken to many of you, we, at CDRC, understand and respect the reluctance and special circumstances that have kept you from re-starting in person meetings. As we are getting closer to the approval of several promising vaccines, I thought I would let you know that we are taking requests for meeting spaces to help you secure the time and date you will meet in the future. We will happily hold that space for a nominal monthly fee until you and your fellowship determine the appropriate time to return. We have made health and safety our top priority for all those who utilize our meeting space. We have instituted the NY Forward Safety Plan, Disinfecting & Cleaning, Social Distancing, Masking, Screening, Tracking and Traffic Flow protocols required by the State of New York a part of our daily operation. Many meetings have already begun to meet in person, as their Group Conscious has led them. In that time, we have operated safely and without incident. To those of you who are looking for a new meeting place or have been displaced due to the pandemic, we would love to hear from you and secure a meeting space for you as well! Friends, there is “A Light at The End of The Tunnel” for CDRC and all of us. Our mission at CDRC is fueled and filled with Hope. You will see it too and know that we will be waiting for you at the other end! Warm Regards, Mark Kaplan President, CDRC

    • #GivingTuesday will take place on Dec. 1

      Over the past nine years, attention has grown for a special day set aside for something altruistic: charitable donations. Started nine years ago, Giving Tuesday was conceived as a way "to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season." And since its founding, Giving Tuesday has inspired charitable giving resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. Whether or not you donate, you can spread the word about Giving Tuesday via social media by including the #GivingTuesday hash tag. DONATE to CDRC

    • Albany’s First MA Meeting

      Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction. Meetings are a vital part of the MA program. This is where fellowship members go for support, for literature, and mark and celebrate their abstinence from marijuana. There are regularly scheduled (typically weekly) in-person meetings[6] across the globe, as well as online and phone meetings. Those with a desire to quit marijuana use may also participate in an online discussion forum.
