Long ago, the 12 steps of Alcoholic Anonymous became the bedrock of dealing with alcoholism and addiction. However, there is no 12 steps recovery program for one simple reason – the 12 steps are not treatment. The 12 steps are the basis for a social support system, such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) or NA (Narcotics Anonymous).
Treatment is clinical in nature and, therefore, needs to be administered by licensed personnel such as a medical doctor, psychiatrist or licensed psychologist. For example, therapy sessions are clinical and part of treatment and, again, need to be administered by a licensed professional.
More Than a 12 Step Addiction Recovery Program
At Recovery Guild, we recognize the history and benefit of a 12 step addiction recovery program.
To us this means you’re getting the best in actual treatment and therapy along with the AA or NA support system to make sure that once you beat addiction you can maintain your sobriety and regain control of your life and experience the joy you should get out of living. But, like everything else, it all depends on what your involvement. For example, when you come to Recovery Guild, we will work with you and discuss treatment and therapy options that can help you, specifically.
We have a high staff to client ratio to make sure you get the proper individual attention you need to be successful in treatment. And, while you’re in treatment, our staff will introduce you to some 12 step meetings so you can begin to see how that works to help support you once you leave the actual treatment facility.
