Resilience in positive psychology refers to coping with whatever life throws at you. Challenges can knock us down, but we can return as stronger people more steadfast than before. Overcoming a crisis with resiliency is often described as “bouncing back.”

We are committed to helping you through the struggles that often come from loving someone with addiction by gaining personal resources, strength, and other positive capacities of psychological capital like hope, optimism, and self-efficacy so you can struggle well. 

You are not alone.

We are a loving community here for you!
