Recovery and support groups | Substance Abuse

 

Locate an open recovery or support group in your local community. Please note this should be a non-clinical meeting. Attend one of the group’s meeting. The group can be for any type of substance or process addiction. It must be  a peer-led support group to help with the recovery from any addictive disorder. Ensure that the meeting is considered “open” prior to attending it. 

Important Note:  The group must be attended in person. It is not appropriate to take notes while in the meeting, so please refrain and just take notes for yourself immediately after the meeting.

Write a two-part paper of 750-1,000 words that summarizes your experience at the meeting. Be sure to include important concepts presented in the meeting while maintaining the privacy of all group participants. Include the following in your paper:

  2. Describe the format of the meeting that you attended and provide details about the atmosphere or experience of being in the meeting.
