Self-help resources

There are many programs that can help family and friends learn more about addiction, the process of recovery, and how best to intervene. It's helpful for families, friends, and significant others to learn about addiction and understand the process of recovery. Many of the people who are committed go home to their family to continue their treatment. Being aware of your role in supporting recovery will increase the chance of their success. Self-help organizations can be useful resources for families and friends.
