Having a strong network of support is vital to success in addiction recovery. Having a support system helps individuals navigate through their new life in sobriety and lessen the risk of relapse. Recovery is a long road, but being surrounded by a healthy group of individuals who uplift you makes it more manageable.
In treatment, clients will get the opportunity to build and strengthen their support system through various support group meetings. They will also gain a clearer understanding of who they are and what they need from others in terms of support. With a healthy support system, facing challenges is much less difficult. Family and friends in recovery also empower you and allow your confidence and self-esteem to grow.
