Mountainside Recovery Resources

Peer support group meetings provide you a safe space to share your feelings, emotions, setbacks, and successes. Attending meetings can also help you gain additional perspectives on challenges you may face and advice on how to overcome them. Most of all, peer support groups remind you that in recovery, you are never alone.
