Alcohol use disorder can have long-term, life threatening effects if left untreated. But while initial treatment can be effective, ongoing support is often critical.
In addition to the right medical and professional care and local support groups, online resources can play an important role, too. This year, we’re honoring alcohol recovery blogs that are committed to educating, inspiring, and empowering people on their recovery journey.
Alcohol Recovery Blogs
With straight-up information about addiction and recovery, The Fix is a great resource for facts and support. Readers can browse first-person recovery journeys, new and alternative treatment information, research and studies, and more.
The Sober School
Kate Bee took her last drink in 2013. Since then, she’s been helping women “who want to take a break from booze, but hate the idea of missing out or feeling deprived.”
Whether it’s from her numerous blog posts or the “Surviving Wine O’Clock” guide, readers of The Sober School will find many helpful tips for living an alcohol-free life. For women wanting more help quitting drinking, Kate offers a 6-week online coaching program. It teaches a step-by-step formula to change your relationship with alcohol for good.
Founded by Julie Maida Sober Mommies is a judgement-free space for mothers seeking support beyond traditional drug and alcohol recovery methods, like 12-step programs. At Sober Mommies, recovery looks different for everyone, and it’s important to celebrate all efforts made.
This Naked Mind
This Naked Mind aims to reframe how you think about alcohol. By taking away the desire to drink, rather than teaching you how to be sober your beliefs are reshaped. Based on Annie Grace’s book “This Naked Mind,” this blog offers personal accounts from people who have found sobriety through the book and program. You can also hear Annie answer reader questions in video recordings posted to the podcast.
