Substance Abuse Support Groups and Resources across the World
Self-Management and Addiction Recovery Training is a free Cognitive Behavioral Therapy based support group program with meetings across the world, many of which are virtual. SMART meetings may be run by peers in recovery or professionals, all of which are trained in the SMART program's methods. SMART provides support for people with alcohol, drug, smoking, sex addiction and eating disorders.
AA is the biggest free peer-run support service world-wide. You can find meetings just about anywhere in the world. But AA is way more than just meetings. By joining AA, you join a community of people in recovery who want to support you will be given tools to help you make positive lifestyle changes that will help her maintain sobriety. Check out their website for more information about whether AA is right for you and how to find meetings near you. There are also virtual meetings all times of day and night. Note that AA was founded upon Christian religious principals, so those who are not religious might find some tenets of AA's 12 step model hard to accept; most people in AA are very accepting and accommodating to those who are not religious.
NA uses the same model as AA, but is geared towards people with drug abuse problems. Note that a lot of people attend AA and NA meetings interchangeably.
