Find Out How 12 Step Recovery Programs Can Help You Beat Addiction!

12 Step Recovery Program

For many who have found themselves battling addiction, the number one thing you must understand is that it’s a process. It’s because of this common truth that many have tried to overcome their addictions with the help of the 12 step recovery program while in treatment. This is one of the oldest forms of addiction treatment service that have been used by people to overcome various forms of substance abuse. That is why our staff here at Monarch Shores makes it a point to connect with those who need this type of rehabilitation treatment and utilize this process to help people overcome their destructive habit.

Benefits of 12-Step Treatment Programs

By attending our luxury rehab facility you will be able to get a first hand look at how a good 12 step recovery process has many benefits for many people, such as:

  • The steps are universal. This helps those in recovery to seek and obtain support no matter where they are in the world. If there is a weak moment, there will likely be a place to go for understanding and support to help people get through the rough times.
  • The 12-steps count as guideposts for progress. Since some people are progress oriented, the steps can often serve as individual milestones, or goals met.
  • For many people battling addiction, these little victories can make continuing treatment worth it.
  • Everyone progresses at their own rate. Like school, not everyone will make the same progress on their 12 steps, and that’s okay. Just because a person chooses a 12-step rehab program does not mean that they will have to complete their steps in a certain amount of time. Some steps will be easier to complete than others, and that’s where the effectiveness comes in.
  • Countless numbers of people have completed a 12-step program and gone on to live clean, healthy lives, and it’s been around for a long, long time. For many, this is the inspiration to choose a treatment program such as the 12 step.

These are just a few of the benefits of going through this type of treatment program. Some actually find the fact that 12 step recovery programs are rooted in Christian principles as an added bonus, since it allows for a different method of self-discovery.

What are the 12 Steps of Addiction Recovery?

Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable


Step 2: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity


Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God


Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves


Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs


Step 6: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character


Step 7: Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings


Step 8: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all


Step 9: Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others


Step 10: Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it


Step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out


Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs


Is 12 Step for Everyone?

While the 12 step treatment process has been around for a very long time, it still may not be for everyone. So what should you do if this form of treatment doesn’t fit your needs? Fortunately, there is the option of signing up for a non 12 step addiction treatment program that is also offered at Monarch Shores.

This will allow you or a loved one to still work towards sobriety, but with a different framework that is found in a traditional 12 step process. By using methods such as group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, SMART, and so much more you can slowly start to work towards a new life that is free of substance abuse. So whether you’re looking for 12 step or non 12 step treatment you can find them both at Monarch Shores today!
