Other options than support groups
I am just wondering about maintanence.  Once I have finished withdrawals, how do I stay clean?  I live in such a small town, there isn't an NA, and even if there was I am not sure I would want to go because people would know me.  Of course and then the whole town would know.  What other options are there to help someone stay clean?  I know I should keep posting on this forum and intend to do just that, I was just hoping to get additional suggestions.

if you can see a drug and alcohol councelor/therapist weekly, they can teach you coping skills, how to deal with cravings, temptation and alot of other issues that go with addiction.
an addiction specialist, psycologist, psychiatrist???... the same type of things as a therapist does...do you have insurance?..
i dont know what else to say...this IS the hardest part...this is where all the hard work comes into play...not many options available...start looking for something now.
maybe go to a different town for meetings?
good luck hun...

I found some online NA groups/meetings just by googling "online NA." That way, you can work the twelve steps, be in a support group, attend meetings, etc. and it's all anonymous! I haven't tried them yet but looked for the same reasons - small town, don't want others to know, etc. Good luck.
