Support Programs & Resources

“I also learned a lot about my disease and was given a solution. Going to treatment also enabled me to find a place to live once I got out.”

– Alex R.

Self-help programs have long been known to be effective in assisting people in recovery. Each program has a different focus and often individual groups within each program are different. We encourage you to try several until you find both the program and the group that best suits your needs and personality.
