As anyone in recovery knows, Recovery Support can come from many sources. A recent newspaper article prompted my thoughts on just how grateful I am of the recent expansion of this safety net. Since we are located in the capitol city of our state, it’s easy to take for granted the accessibility to 12-step meetings and other traditional addiction therapy.
Enter Reddit, an online chat room forum or bulletin board system, where registered users can submit content. StopDrinking is a platform within Reddit devoted to people who are recovering alcoholics and addicts. The forum is a peer-based support program. How cool!
It can be used in a number of ways: to supplement those already attending 12-step meetings; for those who live in a rural areas with few 12-step meetings available; or just added support at your fingertips 24/7. StopDrinking offers daily check-ins, often helpful in the ever important accountability wellhouse. For those who cannot get past the stigma of public meetings just yet, StopDrinking offers a truly anonymous way to get help and connect with others struggling with the same issue. https://www.reddit.com/search?q=stopdrinking
