Peer support is a crucial factor in the journey of recovery, and not surprisingly, it is one of the main tenets of Alcoholics Anonymous. In peer support programs, professional people who have reached their own recovery from addiction and mental illness, receive formal training so they can help others on their journey to successful recovery.

Addiction SUPPORT

Many people underrate the effect of Peer Support because they think of it as a side benefit to therapy treatment, but at Long Island Sunrise Detox, we have strong convictions that peer support is vital for long-term recovery, because it is also vital for everyone in general. Everyone at some point in life experiences loneliness but it is unhealthy to feel disconnected and alone. Peer support during addiction treatment and recovery is essential for the psychological aspects of short-term recovery, and is helpful with long-term personal growth and goals of addiction recovery. Treatment plans help guide individuals through the recovery process, but sudden stress can threaten recovery. It is during these moments of sudden stress that peer support steps in to maintain recovery. 

Sunrise Detox of Long Island provides immediate treatment through our inpatient programs, followed by short and long terms solutions such as individual therapy, group therapy, and peer support. These applications all have a place in the overall process of recovery and offer the optimal chance for a happy and rewarding life.
