The Importance of Support During Recovery

As addiction to drugs and alcohol continues to rise, researchers have found that a strong support group will help patients through recovery. Nearly 50 percent of those who seek treatment will relapse however, by finding the right treatment program along with supportive family and friends, we can help to reduce this risk.
One type of treatment is inpatient programs. Inpatient programs help to foster new relationships with recently clean and sober individuals. These
relationships are formed through supervised social gatherings and group therapy. A strong support system plays a key role in helping one stay on the road to recovery and not turn to old habits as a way to deal with what life may bring.

Having supportive family and friends will help the recovering addict stay accountable for their actions and decisions as well as offers them someone to turn to for advice.
