Online & Local Support Groups: Ultimate Guide To Over 1000 Meetings
Addiction isn't a choice.
That statement may not seem groundbreaking today, but the idea of alcoholism as an illness was a new concept in 1939 when the book Alcoholics Anonymous was first published.
Today, the 12-step recovery model is a cornerstone in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. Evidence supports the effectiveness of peer-to-peer support mutual aid organizations such as AA and NA.
A study, sponsored by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), examined the effectiveness of various treatment types in reducing overall drinking and drug use, and concluded that the 12-step model resulted in the most significant long-term impact.
In addition to AA or NA, there are meetings facilitated by mental health & peer support specialists, secular support meetings, such as LifeRing, and Yoga based recovery.
Plus, faith-based groups, including Celebrate Recovery, as well as meetings for agnostics, freethinkers, and atheists on zoom.
