Support Group

We Do Recover

After completing drug or alcohol addiction treatment, whether from a residential facility or through counselling or outpatient programs, individuals are often encouraged to join support groups to maintain recovery. These groups offer structure, connection with like-minded individuals, and a safe space away from triggers. They also provide opportunities to learn healthier coping skills. A variety of support groups exist, and it’s beneficial for individuals to find the one that best suits them, as each group, even within the same program, can differ due to its peer-led nature.

Key types of support groups include:

  1. 12-Step Programs
    Such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), these are based on the 12 Steps, focusing on acknowledging powerlessness over the substance and finding a higher power. They involve regular meetings, sometimes daily, and the use of phone apps to track sobriety.
  2. SMART Recovery
    This secular option focuses on changing thought patterns and aligns behaviors with personal values, emphasising self-empowerment and education.
  3. Moderation Management (MM)
    Specific to alcohol, MM is for those who aim to reduce alcohol consumption rather than abstaining completely.
  4. Additional Options
    These include groups for specific demographics or issues, like Dual Recovery Anonymous for co-occurring mental health issues, and groups for different populations such as LGBTQ or young persons.

Support groups also provide online meetings, which are particularly useful for those unable to attend in person. While these groups are peer-led and not substitutes for professional treatment, they are an integral part of the recovery process, offering a sense of community and ongoing support.
