Recovery Resources Lists Now Online

For the past two years, as we’ve been updating The Recovery Book, we’ve been collecting online resources related to addiction and recovery. Many of them will be listed in the book, but we had far too many to include. So we are posting them here as well, in Resources.

We have links to all kinds of resources: treatment directories, health effects of addiction, sober living directories, drug testing, legal and employment issues, drug courts, sober social networks, online meetings, medication safety and disposal, recovery activism, campus recovery associations, mutual help fellowships, resources for teens, resources for family and friends, help to quit smoking, and much more.

We also have links to recovery support groups for many diverse communities: bikers, pilots, nurses, Buddhists, Jews, Native Americans, doctors, lawyers, and more.

Please explore our lists. Share them with others. And please let us know if you have anything to add. We want to keep building the lists. (Send updates or corrections to TheRecoveryBook@gmail.com.)
