The Importance Of Support During Recovery

You might feel you can quit on your own and do it safely, but, there is an added benefit to socialize with others facing the same issues. Being able to interact with others who are in the same boat with you gives you the strength and encouragement to pull through and not go back.

We found the interrelation between poor living situation and substance abuse through experiment in 1970s. Psychologist Bruce K. Alexander a Canadian did an experiment that showed that rats put in a dark solitary place, they chose drug-infused water over clean water developing addiction quite fast. On the other hand, when established in surroundings with open areas and other rats to socialize with, nearly no rats picked to consume the drug water. This simple case demonstrates how essential is to have interaction, support and exercises that supply an empty place many choose the substances in order to fill.

"Along with this understanding comes a much greater emphasis on attempting to establish addicted people in a welcoming community, thereby reducing their need for addictive compensations." Psychologist Bruce K. Alexander on Rat Park experiment

Psychologist Bruce K. Alexander said about Rat Park experiment, that creating contacts can influence one's success in quitting drug or alcohol use. Forming or maintaining connections with family members, sponsors, counsellors or other people during recovery process can ensure support and encouragement so necessary to withstand drugs or alcohol.
