In brief: Try 12-Step Program

Short term goals in substance abuse recovery would include abstinence and creating a good support system to remain sober. Long term goals would be to make life style changes consistent with sobriety, reestablishing relationships with family and friends, and becoming a contributing member of society again.
I would encourage anyone to seek out a 12-step program as a first step in their recovery.
