Why attend a support group?

Support groups offer hope, impart information, and can be an invaluable source of feedback. Although groups are not a substitute for individual psychotherapy, nutrition counseling, and medical treatment- they are an affordable addition that can enhance treatment. Groups can be joined at any time during  the recovery process-- from the first step to the final stage.
