Accountability is an essential factor in many areas of our lives. Want to set and achieve a goal? Statistics show if you tell someone about your goals, you are nearly 80 percent more likely to reach that goal. That is the power of accountability in action. Accountability gives you the extra edge you need to create the incentive that pushes you that one last step closer to your goals.

In recovery, accountability works the same way! The simple idea that you know you have to tell someone about your day, your willpower, and your activities can give you the extra boost you need to make the tough decision. Recovery is filled with tough decisions and having someone to report back to is a powerful motivating factor.

Accountability comes in many forms. Most commonly, people think of verbally communicating their thoughts with the person that is holding them accountable in their recovery. Often that person ends up being a friend or family member. Thanks to the amazing advancements in technology, accountability today is much more diverse. Now, an individual can reach out and share their progress through regular text messages, chat groups online, and webinars. The excitement here is that even if you are physically far from someone, you can still be face to face through the use of video technology.
