    Recovery Blogs

    Below is a growing (hopefully) list of resources you can check out. No promises on the content, however, there might be some real gems. I've found several blogs that I've begun to read daily and it seems to help. If you've got a favorite blog and would recommend it, please don't hesitate to add it to the list. As I find them, they will be added. The blogs, along with our own forum, and any outside resources will help to keep our topic - that of addiction, staying clean - on the forefront of our minds always. Remember, create a NEW LIFE.

    A recovery blog (or web log) is a type of website or part of a website usually produced by an individual in recovery with regular entries of commentary and personal discussions on different aspects of addiction recovery. It is like an online diary. Most blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs, helping people connect with each other, learn and share ideas.

    Addiction Blog (alcohol.addictionblog.org)
    This network of writers and bloggers are industry leaders interested in the field of addiction treatment. The site embraces new ideas and alternative approaches for the treatment of all types of addiction and aims to stimulate intelligent communication about the trends and discoveries in the treatment of addictions.


    Addiction Inbox: The Science of Substance Abuse (addiction-dirkh.blogspot.com)
    Blogger and freelance science writer Dirk Hanson maintains this blog. This is a popular spot to learn about scientific and medical findings on drugs and alcohol. Posts include interviews with neuroscientists, drug policy czars, social science professors, and many others. Hanson simplifies complex medical information on drugs, addiction, alcoholism and treatment therapies to make them easy to read and understand.
