    How to Make the Most of a Recovery Networking Event

    If  you ever get a chance to attend a recovery networking event, know that you have a lot to gain by doing so. Anytime you get to mingle with likeminded professionals in a group gathering geared toward helping you do your job better and ultimately help people in recovery, it’s a win-win situation. Here are a few benefits you will receive by attending a recovery networking event.

    1. Shared knowledge

    When you network with others, there is ample opportunity to share knowledge, ideas, innovations, success stories, and more. Whether the networking is online or in person, bringing a diverse group of people together with various backgrounds and expertise can be benefit everyone. Hear the latest recovery news, tips, treatments, and more. You can learn more in one recovery networking event by talking with others than you could reading a few books about the same topics. There’s just something about the actual interaction that helps you take in the information and retain it so much better.

    2. Building connections

    Recovery networking events help you build connections with others in your field. Maybe one day you’ll have an important question about something and remember that one peer you met at the event specialized in that, so you can contact him for some advice. Or perhaps you can meet others that you can make referrals to down the road if your plate is full. Connections are also important for building your support team. After all, professionals benefit from having a core group of people to offer support and encouragement just like those in recovery.

    3. Increased opportunities

    You never know what kinds of doors will open when you meet others in your profession. Perhaps more clients or a job offer that you’ve been dreaming of. You may also meet others that you will want on your team down the road. Who knows what can happen? The key is to get out there and give opportunity for such doors to open.

    4. You feel more confident

    Meeting others and networking helps you get out of your comfort zone and can increase your confidence. When you feel connected to a larger group of professionals, you just feel more confident in yourself and you realize that all of you are part of a team of professionals who simply desire to make a difference in people’s lives.

    5. Friendships

    You just might make friends at a recovery networking event, which always feels good. Not only do you automatically have similar interests when it comes to recovery, but you can also encourage and support one another throughout your professional and personal journeys. You can even have some sober fun off the clock together!

    Without a doubt, attending a recovery networking event is well worth your time. If there aren’t any happening in your area, talk it over with some of your peers and think about starting one. At the end of the day, it benefits not only those who work in the profession, but all those who are fighting to get sober as well.
