Professional Help?

Does someone in recovery only attend group meetings rather than get professional therapy as well?

Individual Choices and Needs

by: Ned Wicker

Dear Kim,

After treatment, many people move into a recovery group of some kind, be that Alcoholics Anonymous, or some other group. Recovery, unlike treatment, is a lifelong endeavor and there are folks who have been going to meetings for years, not only to get the help and support they need, but to help others.

Sometimes professional help of some kind is the best route to take top deal with deeper, psychological issues. Often those in recovery will turn to clergy to work through spiritual issues.

In any case, the needs of the individual are important and proper choices are vital to the success of the recovering person.
