Social Media Resources for Your Sobriety & Recovery
There is a lot of chatter online about how social networks and social media can help with recovery from addiction. In the old days, a person in recovery would have to find a way to attend their counseling or support meetings, whether by car, bus, bike or by good old fashioned walking.
Now, whether you’re exploring the internet from your mobile device, home, school or your local library, you have access to any number of social media hubs that allow you to be part of any community you’d like. And the best part? There are actually quite a few opportunities to be a part of social groups that help support your journey to and through recovery online!
Here are just a few well known websites and social media communities and resources to help you find friends, sponsors and a healthy, supportive community, all at your fingertips!
