Our Place Recovery incorporates the 12-step treatment model into all therapy as an immediate foundation of addiction recovery. The 12-step model is based on the theory that compulsive people understand one another on a deep, cellular level. This group of recovery addicts know where you’ve been, and they know which thoughts occupy your brain and keep your addictions alive. More so, they’re willing to provide the kind of help that an outsider can’t begin to fathom.
Florida Drug Rehab is Only the Beginning
Drug rehab is a program that helps you get clean and sober. It is the beginning of the recovery process. During addiction treatment you learn about the disease of addiction, triggers, coping and how to take better care of yourself.
You also begin the process of getting honest with yourself and uncovering long-hidden fears as well as misguided beliefs that may have held you back from achieving your potential. In addiction treatment, you are in a safe, secure and supportive environment. You have the appropriate setting in which to begin the recovery process, away from the distractions and pressures of old people, places and things.
The reason the treatment professionals at Florida drug rehabs introduce you to the 12-step program philosophy and get you started participating in 12-step meetings is that you will have ongoing success. This is the primary foundation that will help you achieve long-term sobriety once you complete treatment and return back to your community.
What is Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous?
In short, Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other; their aim is to solve their common problem of alcoholism while assisting others in their recovery process. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. The same would apply to Narcotics Anonymous or other related 12-step programs.
Anyone who thinks they have a problem with drugs or alcohol can attend. Young or old, man or woman, rich or poor, educated or not. Race or religion doesn’t matter either.
The people who attend 12-step meetings come from all walks of life. There are the newly-sober, those coming back into recovery after relapse, the old-timers, and everything in-between. One thing they all have in common is that they have joined because they want to remain sober. They support others with the same goal. No one will pry into your personal life. You go by first name only. That’s why these groups have the word “Anonymous” in their names: Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Marijuana Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, and so on.
Anonymity is part of the overall group philosophy. Members of 12-Step groups seek no personal recognition in the media and absolutely adhere to the anonymity basis of their philosophy.
So, if you are at all worried about those who attend 12 -Step meetings and whether or not your personal identity will be compromised, you can dismiss those concerns right now.
Our Place Recovery 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 share their experience, strength and hope around the world!
