Additional Sobriety Resources

Podcasts are an excellent way to learn and connect to other sober people. However, they aren’t the only option when it comes to sobriety. For some, listening to a podcast is just a small part of recovery.

If you or a loved one struggles with drinking too much, or you’d like to find a formal support program to help you overcome alcohol use disorder, consider professional treatment. Some of the best treatment approaches available include:

  • Inpatient treatment: An intensive treatment option that provides full-time supervision in a sober living environment. 
  • Outpatient treatment: Treatment option combining access to many of the tools used during inpatient treatment, but without full-time supervision or overnight stays. 
  • Therapy and counseling: Used alone or in conjunction with other treatment tools to address reasons for addiciton, develop healthier coping skills, and strengthen a person’s support system.

12-step programs: Programs that provide access to peer support using the traditional approach introduced by Alcoholics’ Anonymous.
