12-Step Programs

Traditional 12-Step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are abundant and easy to find for all sorts of addictions. It offers a set of principles and a course of action to help overcome an addiction, with the first step being the admission that the addict cannot control their addiction. The group relies on unity and will often rely on “sponsorships,” which is where a more experienced person in recovery will help guide a less than experienced person in recovery. These programs also rely heavily on faith in a higher power, which may not be for everybody.

Other Addiction Support Groups

Maybe an addict will feel more comfortable speaking with other people in recovery for their addiction to a specific drug. There are tons of programs out there that specialize in recovery for a specific addiction, such as Alcohol, Marijuana, Crystal Meth, Cocaine, MDMA, and LSD.

Family and Friends

There are also support groups out there for friend and family to help them deal with helping an addict.

  • Going to treatment at Discovery Transitions was one of the best programs I've participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and overall good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling, case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate with other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced every day. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
