PEER SUPPORT GROUPS
We believe that community is at the heart of sustained and long-term recovery. We also understand that one brand of recovery does not work for everyone. What works for one does not work for all. Therefore, we have scoured, gathered, and compiled a list of programs of recovery to assist you in discovering the path that works just for you. Whether you lean into 12-step groups, Buddhist-inspired organizations like Dharma Recovery or Refuge Recovery; or more cognitive behavioral groups such as Smart Recovery...or a mix-mash of them all...there is a program out there for YOU. Below, you will find links to meeting directories near you to assist you on your journey. No matter what program you gravitate to, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
A twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. Meetings include Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA), Co-Dependency Anonymous (CoDA), and several others.
Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist path to recovery from addiction of all kinds. This is an approach to recovery that understands: All individuals have the power and potential to free themselves from the suffering that is caused by addiction.
