A New Method of Mentoring For Addiction and Recovery Support Produces More Positive Outcomes By Thinking Outside The Box

Perth Amboy, New Jersey (PRWEB) November 28, 2013
A new website, Addiction Mentor, has been launched to help support those dealing with almost any type of addiction, including but not limited to substance abuse, family related substance abuse and general common interests. Widespread methods that have been used such as NA, AA, or family support groups often leave more opportunities for relapse or denial. With addiction relapse rates averaging over 60% (according to drugabuse.gov), the traditional methods are just not effective.
Common excuses for not showing up to a meeting involve scheduling conflicts, personality conflicts and feelings of being judged. Those that do attend at times feel they cannot find a sponsor who truly understands them and is willing to help.
Addiction Mentor is an online community that allows people from anywhere in the world to connect to others who have professional knowledge and/or personal experience in specific fields with the ultimate goal of building a positive relationship.
About Addiction Mentor
Addiction Mentor gives people the opportunity to join as either the Mentor (who will be helping the Mentee) or the Mentee (who is seeking the chance to discuss topics with a Mentor). Mentors have a profile which gives an introduction to the Mentee, so they can find someone they may feel a connection or understanding with. They also have convenient sub links on the bottom of their profile which shows a variety of other topics or interests the Mentor has.
Addiction Mentor is not solely based on communicating about substance abuse. Business development, art, music, parenting advice and many more topics are available to be discussed with the Mentee. The diverse amounts of topics give a Mentee the chance to begin their relationship by discussing common interests first and than introducing the more difficult topics such as drug abuse, alcoholism or any other addiction.
Addiction Mentor removes the excuses of scheduling conflicts. Mentees schedule their own days and times to speak with a Mentor. If a Mentee doesn't feel the connection he/she is looking for, they simply end their conversation with one Mentor and can choose another. They are not limited to just one Mentor. The Mentee is in control of picking their Mentor which removes the excuse of their sponsor not 'getting them'.
Addiction Mentor is also not solely for those personally dealing with issues. Family and friends have the opportunity to seek supportive help or even use this as another form of communicating on non treatment related interests.
While Addiction Mentor is not meant to replace any licensed professionals, it's an additional option of those who are looking to talk about their issues in a more private manner.
Addiction Mentor is not a free service, but is worth the investments towards successful aftercare recovery for loved ones, family members and friends. Each Mentor's price varies and extremely reasonable.
This website may become a worldwide phenomenon that will positively impact everyone who joins.
