Resources

We’ve compiled a list of trusted resources for you and your family to browse. As you progress through treatment, having access to a variety of informational resources can help you and your family navigate the challenges you might encounter and feel prepared for every aspect of the recovery and wellness journey.

If you would like more information on setting up a first responder fellowship support group in your area please reach out to Devin O’Day devin.oday@simplerecovery.com or Matt Fiorenza matt.fiorenza@simplerecovery.com These groups are 100% made up of first responders and do not have any Simple Recovery staff involvement. We would however like to support your efforts to bring wellness to your community by providing a meeting format, some first responder fellowship branded flyers to help you get the word out and to list your group on our resource page.
