WhatsApp Texting Group


sponsor teen_edited.jpg

Want to be part of a Community of TEENS who support each other with resources, support, connection.
Also, lots of extra sober activities organized by sober peers? 

During these times we are offering a closed Natural Highs WhatsApp Group for TEENS in order to stay connected, get support, share resources and receive texting support.

In order to get added to the Natural Highs WhatsApp Group, download the WhatsApp App from your App Store first and then text Avani at 303-859-5778 with your name, age and request to get added.

Guided Meditations to Download

Want to get inspiration to calm your anxiety, transform your challenging emotions, and find your inner strengths? If you find it easier to listen to audio and practice a guided exercise than reading a book these guided exercises/meditations might be helpful to you.

Online Natural Highs Video Courses

If you are not able to attend a Natural Highs Course in person you can participate in a live recorded workshop so you are not missing out on a sense of community. Every Natural Highs course is unique and is co-created by the questions and input of the participants. Online Courses cannot fully substitute the sense of community in person so we highly recommend supplementing an Online Natural Highs Course with participating in online live hangouts or the WhatsApp Natural Highs group.
