Support Groups? - April 8th 2016, 11:48 PM

I am looking for some support group that is specifically non 12 step programs. I gave it a good shot but am not finding it helpful, so I stopped going. Nobody reached out to me, even though I've been in the rooms since Summer. I didn't stop going for the attention, but now that I feel I am not missed, it is justifying why those people were not right for me. Any suggestions? A lot of support groups are either mental health or substance abuse, I would be looking for a dual-diagnosis program but I have no idea what to even search or how...

Hi

I'm glad you're wanting help from a support group. I got to a AA meeting and find it really helpful. Unlike a lot of other meetings, we don't have to do readings or follow one of the books but we can just talk about how we are and how our weeks has been and anything thats on our mind. Maybe have a good google and search for local support groups that are in your area?

Hope this helps a little.
