12-Step Alcohol Recovery Program
The 12-step alcohol recovery model was first developed by Alcoholics Anonymous, but that model is now used by several different groups, including Cocaine Anonymous, Crystal Meth Anonymous, Heroin Anonymous, Marijuana Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Nicotine Anonymous, Pills Anonymous and many others.
Finding the best 12-step behavioral addiction/alcohol recovery programs can seem like a daunting task, but by keeping in mind just a few ideas, you should easily be able to find a program that is right for your needs. If you need help in your search, we have the expertise to guide you.
The 12-Step Recovery program is a most popular and well-known treatment program. The 12-step approach to recovery has been very successful in helping those dealing with addiction to alcohol or drugs. The Luminous Care’s specialists will guide patients through the 12 steps in our nurturing and healing environment. We bring AA and NA meetings to our treatment center, and we provide transportation to AA and NA meetings outside of our center, as well.
Benefits of the Program:
- Determine Addiction – You can go to a 12 step meeting and hear other people’s stories and decide if there are any similarities between their stories and yours.
- Relate to Others – The idea behind 12 step groups is that you feel stronger when you belong to a group of people who are doing the same thing.
- No Judgement – Most individuals have difficulty sharing their emotions, partly because they’re afraid nobody will understand them, and partly because they’re afraid that they’ll be criticized. The people at a 12 step group won’t judge you because they’ve have heard it all before. They’ve done it all before. They know that you’re not crazy because of the things you do when you’re using.
- Learn from Others – 12 step meetings are a resource. You can ask other people who’ve been in the same boat you’re in how they handled certain situations. You can ask them if what you’re going through is normal.
