Building a Solid Support System in Recovery

Leaning On Your Loved Ones Throughout Recovery

Although you may feel alone in this fight against addiction, having people who love and care in your corner can make all the difference. Here are some tips to help you build and use your support system to help you throughout your wellness and recovery journey.

Express How Your Loved Ones Can Help You

The first thing you can do to utilize your support system throughout the recovery process is to identify your needs and express how your loved ones can help you. Whether you need someone to vent to when you’re feeling discouraged or a close friend to accompany you to therapy sessions—letting your loved ones know where they can provide support gives them the opportunity to show up for you.

Be Patient With Yourself and others

Although their hearts may be in the right place, it may take a few tries before your friends and family know how to be there for you. Remember that this process is new to them and it takes time and effort to learn how to make you feel supported.

Likewise, it may take a few tries for you to stay on your path toward sobriety. Patience is key when it comes to coming to terms with addiction and moving past it.

Ask for Help When You Need It

If you feel like you’re struggling with distressing emotions or you feel compelled to use again, reach out for help when you need it. After all, that’s exactly what this group of loved ones is there for! Don’t feel like a burden; it’s okay to ask for a helping hand when you’re feeling defeated.
