Support Groups and Recovery Meetings in Fort Carson

Recovering from a substance use disorder (SUD) is not simple task. Those battling addiction benefit from support and help from the local community resources. Peer support, for example, may show higher success rates for long-term recovery. Those who get more support from those around them are more likely to do well.

There are many different types of recovery meetings and support groups out there. There are 12-step programs, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and science-based programs like Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART) meetings.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous, also known by its acronym “AA”, is an organization built to help individuals battling from alcohol use disorder (AUD). This organization was founded in Ohio. Today, it provides those facing alcohol addiction a resource and support group to overcome this deadly disease. AA is widely available in nearly every community of the United States.

AA meetings are available for anyone wishing to attend. The only requirement is to stop drinking and to have a desire to achieve sobriety.  There are no fees to become an AA member. Some AA members will attend multiple meetings per week, especially early on in their recoveries.

AA meetings are faith-based, which means that members put their faith in a power greater than themselves to help them recover. The higher power does not have to be a religious figure. It can simply be a belief in oneself. AA is quite effective. A study found that those who attended AA were able to abstain from alcohol at better rates than those who didn’t attend.

SMART Meetings

A few Colorado rehab resources include self-management and training meetings, also known as SMART meetings. Learn practical skills, like the ABCs of REBT, or how to work through relapse triggers. Similar to AA meetings, SMART meetings are based on group therapy and support, but unlike AA do not involve faith-based systems. Instead, these meetings are science-based and follow a 4-point program. They’re different from standard 12-step programs. These meetings help members learn how to manage behaviors associated with addiction

Fort Carson Rehab Resources: Online Addiction Programs

AA or NA and other mutual support groups may not be enough. Many recovering addicts may find that they still need additional support. Some recovering addicts may not always be able to make it to in-person meetings. In these situations, these individuals should consider looking online for more support.

AspenRidge REACH

AspenRidge Recover just unveiled Colorado’s first fully integrated online addiction treatment through REACH Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Telehealth has greatly expanded reach for health care systems and programs, but AspenRidge’s REACH is designed with our local communities in mind. The mental health and addiction needs of Coloradans statewide indicate large gaps in accessibility and affordability for effective treatment programs. We’re working to change these numbers.

There are many online support groups available that can help recovering addicts get one step closer to addiction recovery. These and other groups are wonderful resources. Take a look at some of the options available below:

  • Therapy Tribe – Therapy Tribe offers many different ways for recovering addicts to connect with other people in recovery. They have a social media platform that makes it easier for recovering addicts to meet people that they can identify with.
  • Daily Strength – Daily Strength offers recovering addicts an easy way to find people with similar addictions. They offer support groups and opportunities to meet with others in their online groups.
