My team has learned there are some things that work better than others, through thousands of hours of experience with those in recovery, as well as research done by our experts in the field.
This means you don’t have to figure it out on your own, or reinvent the wheel. We’ve put together a road map for recovery that will take you step by step.
Recovery is a journey. It’s not pass or fail.
To help you move forward each day, I’ll send you Soberbuddy Mail – a free daily email that includes a bite-size challenge that will help you stay motivated, learn skills, and prevent or recover from relapse. All you have to do is follow the challenges and things will start to improve for you.

Having a supportive community of people who get what you’re going through is SO important. Isolation during recovery can create depression, shame, and resentment towards others.
When you get around people who understand the feelings you’re having, you can start to release your shame, learn what’s worked for others, get advice, stay motivated, and build deep meaningful relationships.
It also helps to know where there are people rooting for you and holding you accountable. and as you grow in your sobriety, you’ll get the chance to offer that same help to someone else who’s just starting their recovery journey.
