Executive Home Detox does not mandate or require clients to use self-help groups for addiction support. EHD does support their use whenever a client is willing to use this ‘treatment tool’. Self Help groups, for the right person, can mean the difference between sustaining sobriety and relapse.

Recovery Chat Rooms
There are quite an array of recovery chat rooms. We suggest investigating at least three sites prior to making any decisions about joining a specific chat room.
Medication Related Sites
Executive Home Detox supports the use of medication assisted recovery. Data is clear that medication assisted recovery works best when used with both individual and group therapy/self help groups. The following are sites sponsored by the makers of these medications. Please take that into consideration when reviewing these sites.
