Mutual and recovery support group meeting data
Often called self-help groups or mutual aid groups, support groups are small-scale community-oriented groups where people suffering from substance use disorders meet and provide support to each other.
These groups provide a safe space for people to share stories, talk about challenges, or share personal achievements- often with an overarching framework guiding the group purpose. Mutual support groups are often an initial destination for people hoping to find recovery, and also serve to help people maintain long-term recovery. Most mutual support groups meet face to face, but there are web-based groups as well.
This listing of national meeting finders is intended to help those seeking support resources in their community. You may want to know that we do not endorse or directly support any presented resource. Those seeking programs, services, or treatment are urged to verify each provider’s credentials and certifications to confirm their expertise and quality of service.
Groups in BOLD type have meeting data published to the Recovery Resource Hub where available for metropolitan areas and local communities.
