Peer support is one of the essential elements in the journey of recovery, and not surprisingly, it is one of the main points of Alcoholics Anonymous. In peer support programs, professionals and people who have attained their own recovery from mental illness, and drug or alcohol addiction, receive formal training so they can help others on their path to successful recovery.

Addiction SUPPORT

Peer support is viewed as a supplemental benefit to formal treatment, but at Sunrise Detox at Millbury, we believe peer support is vital for long-term recovery because it is also vital for all people in general. Everyone experiences loneliness at some point in life, but it is unhealthy to feel alone and alienated. Combined with addiction detox and recovery, peer support helps the psychological need of short-term healing and the long-term personal growth goals of addiction recovery. Treatment plans assist in guiding individuals through the recovery process, but sudden stress can threaten recovery plans. This is where peer support makes all the difference.

Sunrise Detox at Millbury has a system in place that provides immediate treatment through inpatient programs, followed by short and long-term solutions such as individual therapy, group therapy, and peer support. The proper application of these essential parts of recovery offer the best chances for achieving a fulfilling, happy life.
