There are two ways to start addiction recovery … isolated and alone, or using recovery groups. We are already isolated and alone when we are bound by our addiction so attempting to break the addiction cycle alone is not a smart move.
Participating in a recovery group will dramatically improve your chances of successfully escaping the bondage of your addiction.
This is a scary thought for those trapped by their addiction. They are scared to show that addiction to others, bringing this silent passenger out into the light. However, in a recovery group, every other member has an addiction they were/are scared to be real about in front of others too.
Local Addiction Recovery Groups
L.I.F.E. Recovery has found that addiction recovery groups, and intensive recovery workshops, have a tremendous impact on those seeking recovery from addiction. Typically, an addition recovery support group meets weekly in a safe location and meetings can run from 1 to 2 hours.
When a new member is considered for entry into the group, the group facilitator usually meets with them to:
- Understand where they are in the addiction recovery process
- Orient them to the path to recovery
- Explain the format of the addiction recovery group meetings
We recommend contacting you pastor or another local church and inquiring about an addiction recovery support group or similar program. If they do not have a program, you may refer them to our program.
Telephone Addiction Recovery Groups
If there is not an addiction recovery group in your local area, you may consider joining one of our TeleL.I.F.E. Conference Calls. We urge you to actively seek a group in your area through all available channels as an in-person group will have a greater impact on your recovery.
Who Should Participate
Telephone Addiction Recovery Groups are suitable for:
- Those that cannot find a local group
- Someone fresh out of an intensive addiction recovery workshop
- Anyone that travels a lot for work
- Those looking to supplement their in-person group time
