About COS XXIII

Circle of Sisters (COS) is a traveling Women's Convention of Narcotics Anonymous. Cities that host a Circle of Sisters Convention have won the bid through a process (see guidelines). This is a convention that attracts "sisterhood in the recovery process." While our traditions state that no addict will be turned away, we respectfully request that our brothers allow us this weekend to bond in the common needs of sisterhood; and we thank you in advance for honoring our wishes (The COSXXIII Planning Committee).

The theme of COS XXIII year of celebration is "Surviving our Emotions." The Detroit West Area has been awarded the opportunity to host this event for the first time.  

We welcome you to the "Motor City" or the "Big D," and would like to share some of its rich history and sights of the first Middle Class and residential City in the United States. Detroit is instrumental with the Underground Railroad that helped slaves gain their freedom. Detroit is the proud home to Motown and artists such as Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, the Supremes, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Anita Baker and our very own Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Detroit is also known for having the first mall (Northland), the first freeway (Davison), home of Bettermaid Potato Chips, Faygo Pop, and Vernor's Ginger Ale. Detroit is the home of the only floating post office, and these are just a few tidbits about Detroit. 

We will provide the opportunity for you to take a Friday morning tour of Detroit (ticket required) - see registration page. In addition, Detroit shares International borders with Canada. If you bring your passport and want to explore even further the tunnel bus leaves daily from across the host hotel. THIS IS OPTIONAL AND ON YOUR OWN.

So let's "Get Down in Motown." See you in 2020
