Currently, we rent our three 3 meeting rooms to over 18 fellowships. We welcome all people – young and old from every walk of life – who are looking for help with any addiction problem. The Dupont Circle Club is conveniently located at 1623 Connecticut Avenue NW, just one block north of the Dupont Circle metro (red line) near several attractions and restaurants. We are open 365 days a year and welcome visitors from out of town.
