Support Groups

When struggling with addiction, many people isolate themselves from their loved ones, causing them to feel truly alone in their recovery. But this doesn’t have to be the case. You can discover others like you who understand your situation, your triggers and your struggles firsthand with an addiction support group.

Support groups are composed of people with similar goals of finding freedom from their addictions. You can find groups for people struggling with specific types of substance addictions, or you can join a group open to people recovering from any dependence. Whatever your preference, you’ll find the encouragement and accountability you need in your recovery from Diamond House Detox’s in-house addiction support groups.

Why Should I Attend a Support Group for Addiction?

Many people who are recovering from addiction struggle with feelings of shame and isolation. These feelings might keep you from reaching out to your friends, family or even a therapist since you might feel like these people don’t fully understand what you’re going through. But isolation only encourages addictive behaviors. Instead, with an addiction support group, you can take comfort in the support and advice of people who are overcoming a similar situation.

Support groups help individuals with addictions feel genuinely connected to others. You can rest assured that you won’t be judged for your experiences and urges since everyone in the room shares similar struggles. What’s more, you can find encouragement as you and others exchange healthy coping strategies and hold each other accountable against the dangers of relapse.

Overall, an addiction support group can provide helpful advice from people who understand your triggers. And perhaps most importantly, it can bring friendship and mutual healing through the knowledge that you’re not alone in your recovery.
