Healthy Living in Recovery: AA and NA Meetings in Philadelphia

The Source Addiction Treatment Center - Healthy Living in Recovery AA and NA Meetings in Philadelphia

How AA and NA Support Long Term Success in Recovery

Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous have long been used to provide support, empathy, understanding, and connection for those in recovery.  According to a study recently conducted by the University of Michigan’s Substance Abuse Research Center, those who attend AA are two times more likely to abstain from alcohol in recovery than those who do not.  The study also found that the more meetings a person attends the more likely they are to have success in recovery.  

If you or a loved one is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, reach out for help today! Call to speak to our compassionate staff confidentially at 800-204-0418 now.

AA and NA meetings can be either discussion based, where attendees have the opportunity to share their story or concerns they currently have, or there can be guest speakers that present topics relevant to recovery.  Regardless of the format of the meeting, they are intended to provide a place where you can grow, heal, and find a sense of community. 

Benefits of Connecting with a Recovery Community After Recovery

You’ve heard the expression, “it takes a village to raise a child,” well the same can be said for those in recovery.  Having adequate support and surrounding yourself with like minded individuals is so important, especially in early recovery.  Psychologists identify a sense of belonging and love as basic human needs, so it is crucial to find a place that provides both.  Connection with others who have experienced similar struggles and life experiences can provide a sense of solidarity and motivation to continue working hard in recovery.  

You may be feeling lost and alone after completing an addiction treatment program or you may have cut ties with a lot of your friends who are still engaging in unhealthy behaviors, so support groups offer a safe place for you to meet people who value recovery.  Connecting with people in your support group can decrease negative thought patterns often associated with feelings of isolation and low self-esteem.  Connecting with your peers also improves your mood and releases endorphins that create happiness.
