Having a sober support system is crucial for individuals in recovery from substance abuse. A good support system can provide understanding, compassion, and accountability, which can make a positive impact on recovery and long-term sobriety. Building and maintaining a sober support system is an important part of the addiction recovery process. A sober support network can help keep recovery on track even on the darkest days. After completing a drug or alcohol treatment program, a variety of supportive people can work together to provide a system of ongoing support to help build a sober support system. SAMHSA’s National Helpline is also available to provide information and support for family members of people with alcohol or drug abuse problems.
