4) What element does ALOH play in a comprehensive recovery program?

A Light of Hope family support groups can be an essential component of recovery resources in the community for families. We network with other professionals and agencies in dovetailing a solid support system vital in the recovery process.

A comprehensive program can include these elements:

  • an accountability contract — medical care (residential
  • rehab or outpatient
  • treatment if necessary) — self-care
  • attending other meetings (AA/NA/Al-Anon)
  • working a 12-Step Program — addiction and recovery
  • education, other community resources and spirituality
  • prevention and intervention using a positive peer group that identifies the beginning stages of destructive changes in one’s life
  • a family counselor (individual support)
  • family support (such as ALOH)
  • connection with an Alternative Peer Group
