The groups I've been to start with a check in- you can skip or pass if you just want to listen, usually a general theme from the check in is chosen which we do an activity around. My fav is the cost benefit analysis which is like a long term pro/-cons list. At the end of the meeting we go back around the group to check out, some people will set their intentions for the week etc.
I like that they break down recovery into 4 parts : building motivation, coping with urges, managing thoughts and emotions, and living a balanced life. It's a very straight forward program that gave me a ton of tools, similar to therapy. If I drank for certain reasons then I need healthier coping mechanisms. Best of luck to you
