At The Camp Recovery Center, we know that residential treatment is just one piece of the lifelong journey of recovery. During your time at The Camp, we will make aftercare planning a priority so that you feel prepared to return to your family with a strong foundation for sobriety.
Throughout your stay, we will discuss the challenges you may face as you acclimate to being back in your home environment, and identify the strengths that will help you navigate them. One of the most effective ways to stay true to your goals for recovery is to connect with others who have shared similar experiences. Addiction leaves many people feeling isolated, but local support groups put you in a setting where you can gain valuable encouragement from others.
Throughout San Jose & Santa Cruz, California area we are fortunate to have a wide variety of support groups available both for the individual struggling with addiction and/or mental health issues and friends or family members.
Addiction and mental illness can make it difficult to put healthy boundaries in place. This group was created to assist individuals in building healthy and loving relationships. This group is open to anyone who wishes to improve his or her interpersonal dynamics.
The Compassionate Friends
Often, addiction and mental health occur simultaneously, and sustaining the loss of a loved one can illicit unhealthy behaviors as you grapple to cope with the pain of the experience. This is especially true for families who suffer the loss of a child, and the mission of The Compassionate Friends is to provide comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild.
