Resources for Peers

Having a community to share experiences with and to provide support and guidance can be invaluable in aiding recovery.

There are many support groups available for individuals in recovery. We recommend you start with the resources below. We will continue to update this section of the site, so please check back often.

  • The Daily Pledge is a free, online support group and social community created by the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, for anyone affected by drug and alcohol addiction.
  • The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) provides help for family members of anyone who has experienced the symptoms of a mental health condition.                  
  • The Confidant Health app matches you to other individuals for support and recovery purposes.
  • Use Google’s custom map to find many types of recovery meetings, from NA and AA to secular approaches like SMART Recovery, in your area.
  • Try In the Rooms, a global recovery community offering a variety of virtual group meetings several times a day.
  • Visit Virtual resources from SAMHSA. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has pulled together lots of helpful recovery resources, from virtual meetings to Reddit threads and other sites and message boards. 
  • Check out LifeRing Secular Recovery. This organization's philosophy is that "there are as many ways to live free of drugs and alcohol as there are stories of successful sober people."
  • Visit Tempest, an online recovery community offering free recovery and peer support, plus a great blog filled with interesting stories and advice.
  • Download the Addiction Policy Forum's Connections App. In partnership with CHESS Health, this nonprofit has created a research-based app to help manage and support recovery.
