I write many articles on self-help, emotional health, physical health, relationship issues and 12 Step programs. In exploring emotional, physical and psychological health issues, I always want to provide support resources. DailyStrength.org is one such resource. Dailystrength.org (click here) is a comprehensive online support group network. Dailystrength.org links people with hundreds of online support groups on everything from parenting issues, health issues, addiction recovery, substance abuse, survivor issues, mental health, 12 step programs and every kind of support group in between.
Visit Dailystrength.org’s huge search engine and database. If a health condition, parenting issue, disease, addiction or survivor issue exists, dailystrength will have a linked online support group or resource for that concern. Those seeking support, help and advice can become a registered member and participate on forums. Daily Strength features an ‘ask the expert’ section, Treatment section, people section as well as the incredibly helpful forums and online support groups. Dailystrength costs nothing to join. Membership is free. Daily Strength website is maintained by parent organizations, advertisment and book store resources.
While most of us recognize the benefits of a 12 step or support group in coping with issues, few of us have time to attend regular group meetings. With Dailystrength.org, the support group comes to you. If it is difficult for you to commit to weekly meetings and a superimposed support group schedule, no worries. With Dailystrength.org, your meeting is only a mouse click away. No time for the routine full hour meeting that most support groups require? No need to apologize and slip nervously out. You can visit the dailystrength.org website day or night for as little or as long a period as you wish. Daily Strength is perfect for SAHMs, WAHMs, working parents, working people, shut-ins, people with no transportation and homebound people.
With an internet chat forum environment, participants feel safer and more anonymous. It’s easier to admit to and discuss those awkward, embarrassing or private issues online in a forum than it is face-to-face with people within one’s own community. I’ve had the uncomfortable experience of seeing fellow Al-Anon members in public for example. To maintain each other’s privacy and anonymity we don’t mention how we know each other, but still know because of what we don’t say.
Don’t deny yourself the benefit of a meeting or support group, when they are proven to be so therapeutic and helpful. Daily Strength is there for you when you need it most.
