Maintain your recovery during the pandemic

The stress of COVID-19 can present many challenges to those who are in recovery. In particular, social distancing is limiting people’s ability to get support from friends, family and support groups.

Connection to others in recovery is a big part of the solution for many in recovery. Meetings make people feel supported and understood in ways nothing or no one else can. With much of the world under orders to quarantine or shelter in place, people in recovery can struggle to maintain a connection to their support groups. The good news is many recovery groups are scheduling virtual meetings, and that number is increasing each day.

Below are links to information about virtual 12-step and non-12-step meetings. These meetings take  place in a variety of ways: over the phone, in online community posting forums, in social media groups and through video.

Also, if you have a sponsor, peer specialist or other special relationship, maintain that connection through text, email, phone, and FaceTime or Skype.
