Research increasingly shows that traditional recovery is not the only means of effective rehabilitation. For many who need treatment, 12-step programs may not be the answer. But it’s important to understand why 12-step programs don’t work for certain people and what other available options. These days, there are non-12 step, holistic alternatives to the traditional 12-step recovery.
Gulf Breeze Recovery offers a unique approach. We understand 12-step rehabilitation may be the wrong choice for some. Yet, we also understand the importance of educating ourselves about the available alternatives and when it’s time to try a different path. Reach out to our team of expert counselors and therapists today at 833.551.2304 to learn more.
12-Step Programs Are Not for Everyone
Many people have gained sobriety through 12-step programs. These are self-help programs based on attending meetings that are peer-supported and peer lead. Individuals “work” the 12-steps to find sobriety and have a sponsor, someone more advanced in their own recovery, who helps them through the recovery process.
There are many reasons why some people who have tried 12-step programs have found it not helpful. Some can’t identify why, but they know that the 12-step program isn’t a good fit. Some don’t like the idea of attending support meetings forever, and others don’t want to keep identifying themselves as an alcoholic or an addict. Still, others know that they need to have medical intervention as they detox or that they need to address their underlying issues privately with a therapist.
In other words, sometimes 12-step programs aren’t enough. Repeated failures after attending 12-step programs cause some people to doubt whether they can find or maintain sobriety. That is when it is time to try something different. If you’re reading this now because you or your loved one need help with a drug or alcohol addiction, then reach out to the team at Gulf Breeze Recovery today at 833.551.2304.
