Recovery Resources

Recovering from substance problems and other addictive disorders requires support.  Family support is very helpful.  The assistance of a counselor who is knowledgeable in treatment of addiction is important.  Often, inpatient treatment or intensive outpatient treatment is needed.  Many have found the assistance of 12-Step meetings to be crucial to long term recovery.  These are some of the most well known and proven 12-Step programs.  Each of these programs is based on the idea of one alcohol/addicted helping another.

Alcoholics Anonymous is the granddaddy of the 12-Step programs.  All of the others share the same 12-Steps.
