Non-12-Step Addiction Treatment – Change the Paradigm

Gulf Breeze Recovery’s new paradigm of treating alcohol and drug addiction concentrates efforts on helping people to undergo their own transformational process.

Unlike traditional therapy, our approach is based on the principles of total health recovery, which indicate that people are the creators of their experiences, are incredibly resilient, and that permanent change can come about more easily than most imagine possible. People do not need to be enslaved by their past experiences and deeds. Once we understand that we are free to move beyond the past and that it doesn’t define who we are, we can move forward with our lives.

It has often been said that Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

We have the ability to change in profound ways. Once people understand the functions of human thought and awareness, they know the following:

  • The restoration of serenity and sanity is available to all of us
  • It is not reliant on any outside source
  • It is a moment-to-moment state of mind that is always accessible

We are the captains of our own ship. Instead of being trapped in the minefield of addiction and/or recovery, we have the power and ability to steer ourselves free, enabling us to chart our own course and live our own lives. We just need to be reminded of our resiliency and understand how to clear the minefield. This is where our non-12-step rehab program can help.

12-Step Addiction Treatment vs. Non-12-Step Addiction Treatment

Traditional Treatment – 12-Step Program

Traditional treatment centers are based on the 12-steps that have been in existence for almost 90 years and are rooted in the commonly held belief that addiction is a moral shortcoming. The major beliefs of a 12-step program are:

  • Positive feelings are a sign of delusion.
  • Addiction is permanent and can only be controlled.
  • Addiction is a chronic and progressive disease.
  • Addiction is an incurable lifetime condition based on the notion that the personality is fixed.
  • Recovering from drug and alcohol addiction is hard work consisting of a lifetime of meetings and rituals.
  • A person is powerless over their addiction.
  • Addiction is a product of biological and environmental determinants.
  • Addicts must relive past painful experiences to free themselves from addiction symptoms and prevent relapse.

THRIVE Transformational Treatment – Non-12-Step and Holistic

Transformational treatment uses advances in brain science, psychology, and our understanding of addiction. Treatment should be based on empowerment, resiliency, and the power of insight.

The THRIVE program is based on the latest research in addiction and mental health, which has shown that:

  • People can and do change
  • People have an innate capacity for healing and growth
  • People are not defined by their past
  • Insight is a major key to change
  • Change is possible without complete abstinence
  • Treatment should be based on each individual’s needs
  • People can lead fulfilling and satisfying lives in recovery

Happiness and serenity are our natural states and, consequently, so is returning to a healthy lifestyle. Once a person reaches a higher level of understanding through personal insight, the drive for change can be both effortless and natural.

Consequently, people can and do change in monumental degrees. We now know that the personality is the sum of ideas that people believe about themselves and is subject to change at any moment. Addiction begins with an innocent attempt to find happiness, “fun,” a way to fit in, a way to make the pain disappear, etc., through outside sources such as drugs and alcohol.

However, we are more than our past conditioning. The past is only a memory carried through time by thought. We have the power to choose how we respond to our thoughts. What is essential is to learn to live life in our natural, healthy state without creating painful consequences.
