Mental health is extremely important to any recovery pathway. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, “Exposure to traumatic experiences, especially those occurring in childhood, has been linked to substance use disorders (SUDs), including abuse and dependence. SUDs are also highly co-morbid with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other mood-related psychopathology.” 

Many of our members have shared stories on our blog about anxiety, depression, ADHD, eating disorders, OCD, and more on our website to let others know they’re not alone and recovery is possible. Some have found relief with the help of medication, exercise, and holistic methods.

There are also many organizations that can help connect you with the kind of support you need. Here are just a few.



National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)

American Foundation For Suicide Prevention (AFSP)

Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)
