Lehigh County’s Local Drug & Alcohol Support Groups

12-Step Support Near Lehigh, PA

12-Step programming has been utilized throughout the world by those who have been attempting to achieve long-term recovery from addictions to alcohol and other drugs. While the steps might appear to be simple, the act of implementing them can be challenging. Thankfully, however, 12-Step meetings like those offered through Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can provide you with the support you need to apply these steps to your life and be successful in your recovery as a result.

Local Resources

When you complete a professional treatment program for addiction, you should receive an aftercare plan that will help you maintain your recovery. That plan may include going to AA and/or NA meetings.
AA and NA meetings will connect you with others in the area who are also recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. These meetings allow you and other participants to openly discuss your experiences in an effort to help everyone involved develop better coping skills and feel supported.
12-Step meetings such as these can be extremely beneficial for all who are working to maintain recovery. If you are in search of AA or NA meetings in Lehigh County, please visit the following links:

For Loved Ones

Supporting a friend or relative who has been struggling with drug and alcohol addiction can be extremely distressing. You have likely given your all in attempting to help him or her overcome his or her addiction. As a result, you might be feeling hopeless, exhausted, and defeated.
It is critical that while you are involved with a loved one who is addicted to drugs or alcohol, you maintain your own wellbeing at the same time. Many people achieve this by attending local Al-Anon meetings.
Based on the principles of the 12-Step Model, Al-Anon meetings are supportive environments in which you and other attendees can openly share experiences related to the impact of a loved one’s addiction. Through doing so, not only can you connect with and learn from others, but you can also establish healthy coping skills, and develop the ability to set and maintain appropriate boundaries that protect your wellbeing going forward.

When you find meetings that best fit your needs, it is important that you fully engage so that you can get the most out of them. Listen to the information that others are providing, ask questions when you have the opportunity to do so, and be willing to share your own story as well. People living in Lehigh County have benefitted from 12-Step programming for years, and you can, too. And, when you are feeling comfortable in doing so, you can provide that same support back into the community.
