How Do I Find Recovery Support Services in Vermont?

Self-help groups and other types of support services are very important in most people’s recovery from alcohol or other drug addiction. Participants in self-help groups support and encourage one another to become or stay drug and alcohol free. Twelve-step programs are perhaps the best known of the self-help groups. These programs include Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and many other programs.

Members themselves, not treatment facilities, run self-help groups. In many places, self-help groups offer meetings for people with particular needs. Many treatment programs recommend or require attendance at self-help groups. By attending, many people make new friends who help them stay in recovery. The number of meetings required varies by treatment program; many programs require participants to attend 90 meetings in 90 days, as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous recommend. Some treatment programs encourage people to find a sponsor, that is, someone who has been in the group for a while and can offer personal support and advice. There are self-help groups for family members, too.
