It is common to initially get involved in a family member’s treatment mainly to support him in getting and staying sober. However, as we start learning about SUDs, recovery, and the impact on family members, we may realize that involvement in our own recovery offers us a chance to address our personal issues, make changes, and grow as people. Recovery refers to learning about SUDs and their impact on us, healing from emotional hurts we experienced, and making changes so that we feel better about ourselves and more in control of our lives. This chapter provides an overview of mutual support groups and online resources.
