Support groups_ Tik addiction
Support groups are places where people can meet in a safe environment to express their feelings and fears, and get support, advice and guidance from others who know what it feels like to be addicted to drugs, or care about someone who is. Having any illness can be very isolating and you may feel very alone. Support groups help ease the pain and give you a place where people really understand you and what you are going through.
