Long-Term Recovery

Your addiction recovery doesn’t have to stop at outpatient rehab. There are dozens of resources in the Central Florida area alone that will support you as you work toward addiction recovery.

International organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), church support groups and hotlines are just a few of the resources that exist to help you end your addiction.

Support Groups

Support groups are an excellent way to track your progress and connect to others dealing with similar issues. Support groups exist for almost every type of addiction, and most groups are free to attend.

Typical support groups include anonymous membership, guidance from experienced professionals and different strategies to prevent relapses and cravings.

Central Florida Intergroup

Central Florida Intergroup is a division of Alcoholics Anonymous serving Orlando and other nearby cities. It offers group support and a 24-hour hotline to recovering alcoholics. Members follow 12-step program guidelines to ensure treatment through abstinence. It offers many meetings to accommodate people living in different areas of Orlando.

Greater Orlando Narcotics Anonymous

Greater Orlando Narcotics Anonymous provides group support for people battling drug addiction. People with different drug addictions, including alcohol, are able to attend its meetings. This organization offers an immediate hotline. Greater Orlando Narcotics Anonymous serves four different counties in Central Florida, but has an online directory for nearly 30 Narcotics Anonymous branches all over Florida.

Tobacco Free Florida

Tobacco Free Florida is a state-funded program designed to give people resources to quit smoking. Tobacco Free Florida offers phone coaching, group therapy scheduling and digital resources that help people overcome nicotine addictions.

 

Virtual Support Groups

Though there are many support groups in the Central Florida area, there may not be an organization or location that suits your needs. Virtual support groups give you aid and encouragement without having to meet with others in person. Facebook groups, web calls with therapists and online forums can provide the support you need to stay off drugs. Consult with a doctor or licensed professional to see if a virtual support group will satisfy your needs.

Church Support Groups

People who want to recover in a faith-based environment may seek out a support group that aligns with their beliefs. These programs follow the original 12-step program design, where addicts recovered through their faith in God. Celebrate Recovery is a Christian-oriented support program with many groups in Central Florida. Celebrate Recovery makes it easy to  find a group near you.
