Recovery Support Groups

Additional Help for Those in Recovery and Their Partners

Therapy isn’t the only help you can access to help you in recovery. Support groups can play a huge role in giving you support and breaking the isolation for both addicts, partners and their families. Most of us are aware of Alcoholics Anonymous, but not that there are fellowships to help those in recovery from a variety of compulsive and addictive behaviours, and that support the partners and families as their loved ones go through their recovery journey.

Below is a list of just some of the groups out there. None of them are facilitated by professionals – they are groups of people all struggling to stop their behaviour, to stay stopped, and to feel able to live a happy and fulfilling life. If you are in doubt, it is sometimes worth going along to a meeting and just listening to what people have to say. You may find you have more similarities with them than you might imagine.
