Find Out How 12 Step Recovery Programs Can Help You Beat Addiction!
The first step of any 12-step program has to do with accepting help with your addiction. In order to move forward with sobriety, 12-step programs require you to first accept the fact you are an addict, and also accept the damage that your addiction has caused. The remaining steps are focused on healing your personal flaws and fixing relationships damaged by addiction. It is strongly suggested you do not work on these alone. 12-step recovery programs highly recommend that you work through these steps with a sponsor.
By attending our luxury rehab facility you will be able to get a firsthand look at how the 12-step recovery process has many benefits for many people:
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 Spiritual principles as an added bonus. They believe this perspective allows for a different method of self-discovery.
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
Because of the 12 step recovery’s success, many inpatient facilities have integrated 12 step recovery into treatment programs.
This is done through multiple approaches:
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?

By using methods such as group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, SMART Recovery, and so much more, you can slowly start to work towards a new life that is free of substance abuse.
