- Support groups recovery programs are based on the idea that the best way to stay free of alcohol and drugs is surround yourself with other people who are also not users but who know the challenges of staying clean. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are two of the most well-known of these types of support groups. In some areas there are special meetings just for teens and young adults trying to stay drug-free. Meetings often take place church meeting halls and other community centers, but AA and NA are not affiliated with any religion.
