Having a strong support group is a very important component of working through recovery. Everyone needs people who support them in their life. Whether you are working on mental health issues, addiction, or simply goals, you need to have a group of people that you know you can turn to for support. As you consider who you feel would make a good member of your support group, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Support and Positivity

The people you surround yourself with can have a large impact on your mental health and overall well-being. Going through treatment can be stressful. You will face struggles, challenges, and past trauma that you will begin to work through. Those around you should bring support and positivity to your life. They should have the ability to help you remember why you are facing your issues and how capable you are of reaching your goals.


Accountability is important in recovery, and making sure you have people in your support group who can hold you accountable is key. While it is essential that you can hold yourself accountable, your support group should also have the ability to remind you if you are not focusing on your goals or making healthy decisions.

New Connections

If you are struggling to find people in your life who offer you support, consider reaching out to new people. Join groups that have topics similar to your interests or groups that focus on sobriety or treatment. There are many groups to choose from, and your therapist will be able to help you determine which ones would be most beneficial to you and your situation.

Professional Support

The mental health professionals you work with will be there for you every step of your recovery. If you are struggling to feel supported, then that is something to bring up to your therapist. They will be able to help you find the support that you need.
