Our Place Recovery incorporates the 12-step treatment model into all therapy as an immediate foundation for return to life of well-being. The 12-step model is based on the theory that compulsive people understand one another on a deep, cellular level. These peers know where you’ve been, and they know thoughts that occupy your brain that keeps your addictions alive, and they’re willing to provide the kind of help that an outsider cannot understand.
For example, if you head to a 12-step meeting and you begin to discuss why one drink might actually be acceptable for you, since you have a few months of sobriety under your belt, the members of that meeting might be all too willing to discuss the concept of relapse and point out the flaws in your thinking. These members might also be willing to meet with you or talk with you when these thoughts begin to creep back into your mind in the future. This kind of wraparound care and honesty could keep you from making terrible decisions that could jeopardize your recovery.
Our Place adheres to the 12-step concept and clients are transported daily to outside meetings as a critical component of their treatment. When you return to your family and community you will have a vital support group of people who will share their experience, strength and hope found everywhere around the world!
