Getting Help From Online Sources

In this day and age there are many places that you can turn to for help from face to face to online.


There are lots of sites and communities made by and for people in recovery, but it is difficult to know what good online resources are. MELDAP have done the hard work for you and provided good links for help and support below:

People Know How – Reconnect

Reconnect offers support to adults and families in Edinburgh and the Lothians to help them improve wellbeing by increasing digital and social inclusion. We believe that digital inclusion and social inclusion are linked and together contribute to enhanced wellbeing. We provide a supportive environment to reduce social inclusion through building digital skills and maintaining connections, helping people to stay connected, improve financial health, increase employability, access resources and more. We also help adults recovering from substance use to become digitally included. Scotland has the highest drug-death rate in Europe. Increase digital inclusion creates opportunities including finding recovery groups, discovering useful tools and apps, tracking housing applications, applying for Universal Credit, keeping in touch with family or rediscovering hobbies online.

Online is a good way to keep in touch with the people who support you, as there is often a friend or family member online at times when you wouldn’t want to call or visit.
Another source of help in this day in age is apps. Lots of apps are free and can easily be downloaded from the Apple app store or Google Play Store. These apps can help keep track of your alcohol/drug use, connect and chat with others in recovery, manage your anxiety, improve your mental health through finding activities and games to relieve stress and find nearby meetings.
