What Does Aftercare Involve?
Support groups offer the chance to connect with other addicts in recovery and allows for the sharing of experiences in a safe and supportive environment.
They also provide literature to help you reach your recovery goals and practical guidelines for coping with the challenges of addiction. Many services, including well-known 12-step groups are free to attend and cover a wide range of addictions.
Attending support groups can help maintain a life free from addiction so if you decide to participate, you are encouraged to interact with other members of the group and help each other to abstain from addictive behaviours.
