How Do Non 12 Step Approaches to Addiction Work?

Why Non-12 Step Treatment?

In the 1930s, two recovered alcoholics helped a third man get better by applying principles they’d learned over the years from different resources. Inspired, they kept going, helping 100 more alcoholics recover within three years. Afterward, they published their methods and case studies in a 1939 book called Alcoholics Anonymous. In that book, the world was introduced to AA’s now-famous Twelve Steps program, and the rest is history. Over the decades, though, many people have failed to achieve success with AA, while the group’s focus on spirituality turns many people off from even trying. That is why non-12 step rehab approaches were launched to bypass the problem areas that AA gets criticism for and to offer viable alternative solutions.

Non-12 Step Rehab

Many non-12 step inpatient rehabs are a safe, secular, science-based treatment option that are most effective in the privacy of a relaxing recovery center. In these optimal settings, specially trained medical professionals can apply a powerful combination of techniques and counseling.

Another advantage of inpatient treatment is access to supervised administration of medications that can help manage withdrawal symptoms, when appropriate.

Unlike AA’s philosophy, non-12 step rehab doesn’t treat addiction as a brain disease.

Instead, it simply focuses on the condition and any other contributing conditions (i.e., dual diagnoses) then applies the most effective, customized treatment plan. This different view of substance addiction empowers the afflicted person to know that they too can overcome addiction.

The non-12 step method is tailored more to the individual. Each person is different, so there is no “one size fits all” philosophy. In fact, though most programs are wholly secular, specific programs do incorporate spirituality for those who desire and benefit from it.

Non-12 step approaches to recovery are a modern and caring way to help those suffering from addiction. The emphasis is on doing what works and on giving control back to the individual. Non-12 step methods are advocated by many support groups, which can provide ongoing assistance during outpatient periods as well.
