A major challenge many people face in recovery comes during the process of adjusting back into society after completing a residential treatment program. This is when you may face people, places, and things that can trigger thoughts of drug and alcohol use or cravings.
Without proper ongoing support, the temptation of relapse can be found anywhere at any time. That’s why the program at Arise Treatment Center is designed to help you prepare for life outside of rehab. 12-Step based therapy, also known as 12-step facilitation therapy, is one therapeutic approach used during rehab that can help you prevent relapse.
12-Step facilitation is an approach that incorporates 12-step concepts and ideologies into a standard substance abuse treatment program. The idea is to promote recovery by means of peer support, spiritual growth, and helping others.
During a 12-Step rehab program, you and your therapist may address the following key points:
12-Step based therapy is facilitated in both group and individual therapy sessions. You may also be encouraged to begin going to 12-Step meetings, find a sponsor, and begin working the steps with your sponsor.
The 12-Steps originated in the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program, but are currently used for all 12-Step based fellowship programs. These steps are designed to help you stay sober by working with a sponsor to embrace a connection with a Higher Power of your choice. Once this connection is established, the steps encourage you to help other individuals through the steps to spread the message of recovery.
The 12-Steps are as follows:
These steps are typically discussed between sponsors and sponsees, fellowship members at meetings, or in 12-step based therapy sessions.
Addiction recovery is a lifelong journey, so it’s important that our treatment program provides you with the skills, resources, and education you need to stay sober. Since one of the most popular support groups for addiction recovery is 12-Step fellowships like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (CA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), and more, it only makes sense to incorporate 12-Step ideas into your personalized treatment program.
12-Step based therapy can help you:
At Arise Treatment Center, 12-Step facilitation therapy is used in multiple different areas of our recovery programming. In both group and individual sessions, you will learn to begin using 12-Step ideas in your recovery so you can maintain your sobriety. When combined with our other evidence-based therapies, the 12-Steps can help promote long-term recovery.
