The Magic of Support Groups

In Episode 49 of Far From Finished, Patrick talks about how his support group has been one of the most important factors in his recovery. He knows that his support group will always be there for him. Above anything else his support group has their recovery in mind. That’s why they all get along so well.

American Addiction Centers (AAC) presents “Far From Finished,” a weekly podcast that shares the real-life stories of people who survived substance use to thrive in recovery. Patrick has friends who didn’t make it and he didn’t want to end up like that. He didn’t want to see his father crying in the courtroom because his son was in an orange jumpsuit. He didn’t want his mother crying knowing her son was facing prison time. He wanted to live up to the potential that he knows he has now. That’s what recovery has given him. Now in active recovery, Patrick wants the real things. He wants something he can grasp and actually see and believe in.  It was really hard for him to see the light, but now it’s there.
