If you have looked into staying at a treatment center for drug or alcohol addiction, you have probably come across the 12-step recovery method. The premise of this model is that people can help one another achieve abstinence from drugs or alcohol; however, it also follows that the healing cannot occur unless they surrender to a higher power.

Benefits of a 12-Step Program

This treatment model provides people with a framework so that they can more easily surrender their addiction, process their experiences, and adopt new, healthier patterns. Below are some of the benefits, to name a few:

As you can see, this method can be the catalyst for change in many types of behavior. It can help individuals who wish to overcome addiction create a path to recovery.

What Exactly Are the 12 Steps?

1. Admitting that your addiction exists and is not something you can overcome alone
2. Believing that a higher power, in whichever form, can help
3. Turning control over to the higher power
4. Taking a personal self-assessment (mentally)
5. Admitting to the higher power, oneself, and an ally about your wrongdoings
6. Letting the higher power correct one’s character flaws
7. Pleading to the higher power to remove one’s shortcomings
8. Creating a list of actions that have hurt others and being open to making amends for those mistakes
9. Getting in touch with those you have hurt, unless contacting them would further hurt them
10. Taking personal inventory and admitting when you are wrong
11. Looking for enlightenment and connection with the higher power through prayer or meditation
12. Relaying the 12-steps message to others suffering from addiction

Steps Recovery is the place you go if want a caring and understanding program. They have helped me gain knowledge about myself and what I want/need to do. The staff there can relate and help you through core issues and they push you to do better because being in this program you know you can do big and amazing things. Also the therapists there are awesome and walk with you through struggles of life and give you the tools you truly need. Overall this place is an amazing opportunity and you’d be missing out on a lot if you chose to not at least try this program. Definitely 5 stars
