Personal Recovery Resources

Once you have completed your rehabilitation program at Banyan Treatment Centers, you should try to surround yourself with people who can encourage you to stay sober. Many people find that support groups are the best source of encouragement. You can find hundreds of support groups and meetings in your community. Our drug and alcohol treatment center stresses the importance of personal recovery resources, especially when you are new to sobriety. Here are a few tips:

  1. Speak with your doctor, counselor or other healthcare provider.
  2. Search the online directories for a list of local support groups and activities
  3. Speak with local or national groups (see a few below) who are devoted to helping people get past addictions and staying sober.

Once you find a support group, you don’t have to feel tied to it. If that group doesn’t seem to meet your particular needs, it is okay to look for another group. Sometimes, it takes a few attempts before you find a group that feels right.
