Helping Friends Who Are in Recovery

Helping friends in recovery certainly is a big topic. If you currently have a friend who’s in recovery and you’re not sure how to support them, then this blog is for you. Feel free to reach out to learn more about this topic and our treatment philosophy here at Avalon Malibu.

Helping Friends in Recovery

If you’re looking to support your friend who’s in recovery, feel free to take a look at the following options. While the following options may not make sense for everyone, they’re common recommendations we make at Avalon Malibu that may be positive for most people.


One of the most positive things you can do for a friend who’s in recovery is to check in on them. Asking them how they’re doing and seeing if there are any changes in their life can be extremely helpful. If you’re not sure whether or not your friend likes being checked on, don’t hesitate to ask them.

Ask Questions

One of the best ways that you can support your friends is to just ask them how they want to be supported. Asking questions about what makes them feel supported is a great way to make sure that you’re doing things that are positive for them. If you’re not sure how to support your friend, you’re not alone – asking can be a great way to make your friend feel seen.

Treatment Support

Supporting your friends in their treatment can look like a lot of different things. Sometimes it might mean that they need a ride to treatment, other times it may mean asking them how their treatment is going.

Setting Boundaries

When it comes to helping friends in treatment, it’s important that you think about your own mental health and wellness. It might be necessary for you to set boundaries in order to have positive and healthy relationships, so think about whether or not this is necessary in your situation with your friend.
