Addiction Recovery Resources
Find the Answers You Need To Start or Continue and Your Addiction Recovery Journey
Regardless of whether ALYST Health is the right fit for you, a close friend, or a loved one, our team is committed to providing as many recovery resources as possible every step of the way.
At ALYST Health, we’ve found that alcoholism and substance abuse thrive in isolation and are most effectively treated with peer-to-peer connections made in the privacy of your own home. While we realize our program isn’t the right fit for everyone, we’re committed to building those vital connections by providing individuals in recovery and their loved ones with all the resources needed to recover from addiction. Whether you’re considering entering rehab for the first time or you’ve already tried fifteen times, we hope that on this page, you find some of the answers you’ve been looking for.
Before you can successfully recover from addiction or help someone you care about overcome addiction, you need to start with a foundational understanding of what addiction is, how it works, and the most effective ways to think about it. If you’re just beginning to explore the first steps, this is the best place to start.
Social stigmas are a common reason individuals and families struggle to reach out or forgo treatment when dealing with addiction-related issues. If someone is worried about what others will think if they admit they have an addiction, it’s almost always rooted in the social stigmas surrounding the issue.
Addiction stigmas can also cause individuals to feel ashamed of their struggles and worry about how entering rehab might impact the reputation they’ve worked so hard to earn. It’s a valid concern, so we’ve deconstructed the different ways rehab can affect someone’s reputation and what to do about it.
When someone you care about is in recovery from addiction, behaviors that seem helpful at the time can lead into codependency and ultimately fuel the cycle of addiction. That’s why the most important question to start with is not, “How can I help someone with addiction?” but “Can I help someone recovering from addiction?”
While the messaging may start to sound similar, it’s important to remember that not all addiction treatment programs are created equally. As you’re vetting different treatment options, ask these six critical questions before deciding on the best approach for you or someone you care about.
For many people, relapse is part of the addiction recovery journey, so don’t get discouraged if it happens to you or someone you care about. The most important thing isn’t that it happened—it’s what happens after. Follow these steps to make sure a relapse doesn’t get in the way of recovery.
As we learn more about the risks underlying addiction, it’s become increasingly evident that addiction is never anyone’s fault. Instead, addiction is caused by a combination of societal, biological, environmental, and psychological factors that need to be taken into account when deciding where to turn for treatment.
Staging an intervention is often a vital first step in getting someone you care about to acknowledge the need for help. Our guide to preparing for an intervention helps you learn more about what it takes to plan and conduct a successful addiction intervention while preparing for what might happen next.

Once you have a baseline understanding of how to approach and understand addiction, you’re probably wondering about the best ways to treat it. ALYST Health employs a range of drug addiction treatment methods, including cognitive behavior therapy, relapse prevention therapy, and couples and family therapy, to give program participants and their family members the tools and skills they need to achieve and maintain sobriety.
At ALYST Health, we believe that addiction is almost always a family disease because it’s the family who has to deal with the resulting consequences of the behavior associated with drug and alcohol abuse. As a result, family members play an instrumental role in successful recovery. That’s why we empower the family and friends of program participants with the resources to support their loved ones at every stage of recovery.
