Addiction has no proven cure, but it can be managed. Maybe you have tried a multitude of ways to stay clean and sober. Maybe you are just starting out. Maybe you have tried 12 Steps. Maybe you haven't. Maybe your belief system does not align with the other community resources you have attended. That's okay. Recovery does not have a one-size-fits-all solution.
The best way to find out what works for you is to test the waters. It doesn't hurt to spend the same amount of time you would if you were using, in a meeting hall with fellow sober addicts and/or alcoholics. Showing up is the hardest part, but can be the most meaningful.
Below you will find links to various types of recovery-based organizations, set to the meeting finder page so you can find a meeting near you asap.
