When it comes to recovery for drug addiction and alcoholism
little can be accomplished without helping people get connected to a strong community. At Live Free Recovery and Sober Living homes in NH, one of our main goals is to create a strong community focused on recovery from addiction. We aim to provide a feeling of unity for people that normally feel disconnected from most of the world.
More than technology and surface level interactions, we can create a sense of community.
sober living community knows this. They remember this was them at one point and then set out to help them.
We take groups of people and then build a strong sense of community amongst them. Giving one another accountability. This allows them to point out where they see you slipping up in your life and allow you to do the same to them. Having this in place helps a man or women grow. Steel sharpens Steel.
sober living programs in NH will not focus on the cultivation of a strong community, but rather let the client just pay rent and take drug tests.
Better still, a strong sense of community makes everything else easier.
It’s easier to attract members, convert newcomers to regulars, sustain high levels of retention and participation. It’s easier for people to succeed in their recoveries from addiction because they feel so connected and supported.
We are all human beings, we are all connected, with addiction there is no possible connection.
Another strong aspect of creating community is doing fun activities together. Creating times to play and have fun are some things that people remember most because for many It is the first time they are having fun in their recovery.
When you create a strong sense of community, amazing things will happen.
When we’re talking about a community, we’re talking about the sense of community felt amongst individuals. This is what a community is. It’s that psychological feeling of being a part of something unique (and special). We need to talk more about it and engage with activities designed to increase this sense of community.
