A Safe, Supportive Recovery Community for Women
At Villa Kali Ma, we believe that everyone has their recovery path and that no two approaches are the same. Everyone must find out what works for them and then continue to engage with what works. We encourage our clients to find as many practical activities as possible, including but not limited to recovery community support group meetings. We believe that it is essential to have a healthy recovery community support system to help you stay on the path of sobriety.
One of the best ways to do this is to attend recovery community support group meetings and connect with others who have gone through (or are currently going through) the process of building a new, sober life. During your stay at Villa Kali Ma, we will attend recovery community meetings several times a week to introduce you to different types of support groups so that you may have a chance to experience what they are like.
Ultimately it will be up to you to continue this on your own after treatment, which we highly recommend if you want to increase your chances of a successful transition into living a life free of the need or desire to self-medicate. Studies have shown that attending regular recovery community support group meetings following residential treatment can increase your chance of long-term sobriety from approximately 34% to 67%.
We do not believe that AA is the only way. We are in an area with many types of recovery community meetings, including (but not limited to):
- SMART Recovery
- Refuge Recovery
- Life Ring
- Women for Recovery
You can find out more about these different recovery community support group meetings and many others by researching online to see what meetings are available in your area. As part of the discharge planning here at Villa Kali Ma, your primary therapist will help you research and locate meetings in your area, as well as decide which types of meetings would best serve you in your ongoing recovery process when you return home. Recovery community support groups are a significant part of the recovery process.
At Villa Kali Ma, we believe everyone should find one or two that work for them and get involved regularly. One way to get involved is to commit to a meeting. Many meetings allow attendees to be of service that includes making coffee before the meeting, being a greeter or secretary, etc. These are great ways to keep you accountable for showing up. They also help you become a part of the recovery community and make friends who can support you along your journey to sobriety.
