The Benefits of 12-Step Programming
At Casa Recovery, we can also adopt a twelve-step model, which is one of the most recognized and highly successful bases for recovery from alcoholism. Our 12-step program is founded on reliance on a power that is greater than yourself, where you have the freedom to define what that power will be. Relying on something or someone other than yourself is a great way to shift your dependence on alcohol or drugs to something else.
The Twelve-step program works on a guiding set of principles that assists addicts in recovering from addiction, compulsion, and other behavioral problems. The program has been adopted and adapted to address many different types of issues, including substance-abuse, dependency, alcohol abuse, food addiction, sex addiction, gambling addiction, and many others.
The most popular variations of the 12-step program are Alcoholics Anonymous (Al-Anon or AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (Nar-Anon or NA), which started back in the 1930’s, and eventually were guided by the “12 Steps.” The 12-steps range based on the specific addiction, but they all follow the same basic principle that recovery is based on fellowship and accountability with others.
There are also Al-Anon and Nar-Anon groups, which are for family and friends of alcoholics and addicts. These groups meet similarly to 12-step groups, and offer support to family members affected by addiction.
We have seen 12-step programming work for some of our patients, and we invite you into this treatment option here at Casa Recovery in San Juan Capistrano.
