Free Recovery Groups
MusiCares is well aware that inpatient treatment is the very first step toward long-term sobriety. The most challenging work of the recovering music person comes when the client leaves treatment and is immersed back into their daily lives. Now clean and sober, they can again encounter the triggers, temptations, individuals, and lifestyle that they took leave of in order to save their own lives. They are again faced with bandmates or friends who are still using, schedules that are erratic, clubs and venues that are redolent of their former lifestyles, and almost daily cues to use. To assist our clients in recovery, MusiCares offers various types of free recovery support groups in Los Angeles, Nashville, Austin, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Fort Collins, Colo. These groups offer a safe environment in which clients can discuss the challenges of staying clean and sober in the music industry. For more information about any of the groups listed below, please contact one of our MusiCares offices.
