Navigating alcoholism or Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) can be a lonely and isolating experience. Those who suffer from this disease often lose loved ones, which can result in a lack of support.
However, those in recovery often find that their Recovery Circle is incredibly supportive of their healthier lifestyle pursuit. Friends and family most often champion their loved one through treatment and recovery and help build a robust support system to prevent relapse.
Staying connected to loved ones during recovery is often crucial to the success of those going through treatment and hoping to remain in recovery. Fortunately, there are many ways to stay connected to loved ones during this time in their lives to help sustain their sobriety.
