The Types of People You Need in Your Recovery Circle

Recovery is not something easily done alone. We all need support, and support comes in different shapes, colors and sizes. Each relationship is special and offers something unique. Listen to this recovery support group talk about the people who have been important to their lives.

Discussion Guide:

Who are the significant people in your life? Name the people who fit these descriptions:

The one who has been there and knows your experience

The one who tells it like it is and tells you the truth, even if it hurts

The one who loves unconditionally without judgment

The one who pushes you

The one who knew you in your addiction and in your recovery

The one who hasn't been there, but supports you nonetheless
