The Importance of Meetings
Many people just starting out in the early stages of recovery may think, “why do I have to attend” these stupid meetings? Many are pessimistic that attending meeting will actually aid in their recovery. We have learned through research that meetings are a very useful tool. Meetings offer a place in which people with a common thread, addiction, can come together to offer support. Being in a room with others who have walked a mile in your shoes, knowing the pain you have been through and knowing how hard the early stages of recovery can be a useful tool. These meetings offer those in recovery a place to feel accepted, a place to feel hopeful and a place to be surrounded by people who understand that addiction is a disease, one you can fight.
