Recovery Resources Available to You
If you have been in addiction recovery over the past two years, you may feel isolated in the journey. Even if you do have people who are along the same journey as you, finding the right resources can be difficult. Finding the right communities and support groups are critical to sustaining and supporting your recovery. Here are some of the resources available to you:
Substances Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) https://www.samhsa.gov/find-help/national-helpline
SAMHSA’s National Helpline, 1-800-662-HELP (4357) (also known as the Treatment Referral Routing Service), or TTY: 1-800-487-4889 is a confidential, free, 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year, information service, in English and Spanish, for individuals and family members facing mental and/or substance use disorders. This service provides referrals to local treatment facilities, support groups, and community-based organizations.
Partnership to End Addiction https://drugfree.org/article/recovery-support-groups-for-addiction-one-size-does-not-fit-all/
After completing treatment for drug or alcohol addiction — whether or not it’s upon discharge from a residential treatment facility or while attending counseling or an outpatient program — most people are encouraged to join a support group to help maintain recovery.
There are a variety of support groups to choose from, but just as with substance use treatment, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. It may be helpful to encourage your son or daughter to try out different groups in order to find the best fit. And keep in mind that since groups are peer-led, each one can feel a bit different even if they are affiliated with the same overall program.
Addiction Center https://www.addictioncenter.com/treatment/support-groups/
Support groups for addiction allow people to share their personal experiences. There are groups that can benefit anyone with any type of addiction. Support groups are also helpful for addicted people with co-occurring mental conditions like depression.
Support groups based on the 12 steps started with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). As the name implies, these groups maintain the anonymity of those in attendance. This is to encourage people to seek help with the comfort of maintaining their privacy.
