Recovering CommunitySuccessful completion of treatment marks the beginning of the recovery process from addiction, but we stress that it is only the initial entrance into recovery. Continuous recovery demands that we reshape much of our lives that addiction twisted into pain and self-absorption. It is a simple but not an easy path and it requires help.
We ask our patients to avail themselves of the wide recovery community whose very purpose is to help each other get and remain sober and happy. Our research over 20 years shows clearly that those patients who maintain strong ties with support groups fare much better after treatment than those for whatever reason do not seek the help of the recovery community.
Resources that are key to maintaining recovery include:
LMRC Alumni Group Sharing - Graduates of LMRC feel a special bond with their friends who completed treatment with them. Check the alumni information link for upcoming gatherings as they occur.
Oxford House - For graduates who need a sober place to live with other recovering people, Oxford Houses provide short or long term housing. Self-sustaining and self-governing, Oxford Houses are situated in residential neighborhoods and require that members pay rent and follow a program of recovery.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) - AA is the oldest and largest of 12-step programs. Thousands of local meetings are held weekly, as well as all over the world. We teach that membership in AA or another 12-step program is essential to early and continuous recovery.
Narcotics Anonymous (NA) - Identical in structure and purpose to AA, NA exists to serve those whose addiction can be traced to drugs other than alcohol. Weekly meetings abound in all communities.
