Finding Support for Alcoholism Recovery

Alcohol addiction causes drastic physical and emotional changes in Orlando residents, and rehab repairs this damage. Counseling and therapy sessions will encourage you to let out and share emotions and struggles related to addiction recovery. By sharing and addressing your feelings you are actively preventing relapse, and you are dealing with the root causes of addiction. This sharing is important during rehab, and it is equally important after primary treatment ends.

Alcohol Addiction Recovery Support Groups for Orlando Residents

You can get in touch with organized support groups through your rehab provider. Most state and national support groups have websites through which you can become a part of their organization and continue to make connections. You can choose a support group that meets your individual needs and interests, as there are groups that cater to each individual and philosophy. Some examples of support groups available to Orlando residents include the following:

  • Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) consists of periodic informal meetings with other recovering men and women in your area that are also fighting alcoholism.
  • Online Intergroup of Alcoholics Anonymous is the online version of AA.
  • Al-Anon and Alateen were created for the loved ones of an alcoholic. You can join these groups even if the person suffering from alcoholism is not willing to seek help. Alateen is for teenagers who are affected by the alcoholism of a loved one.
  • Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) is for individuals who grew up in an alcoholic environment and are struggling with the past or present alcohol abuse of their parents.

Find Your Support System

A good recovery support system doesn’t just consist of regular meetings with peers. Your support system should include your close family and friends too. Loved ones can be a source of encouragement. They know you and have been with you through thick and thin.
