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, including:
- An aversion to attending support meetings forever
- A desire to not have to keep identifying as an alcoholic or an addict
- An addiction that will require medical intervention as they detox
- A need to address underlying issues privately with a therapist
If a traditional 12-step program is not a good fit, it may make a person doubt whether they can find or maintain sobriety. That is when it is time to try something different – a new approach with the same goal of recovery. There are many ways to reach recovery. Reach out to the team at Gulf Breeze Recovery today at 833.551.2304.
Alternatives to 12-step Programs
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) states, “Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior.” That complexity must be factored into any plan of treatment developed for an individual. Each person is unique, and treatment must be tailored to fit that person. NIDA goes on to say that treatment should address other mental health issues. Self-help groups cannot address mental health issues but instead need professional intervention. Thus, at Gulf Breeze Recovery, we made it a point to offer a wide range of therapeutic options to our clients, such as:
- Exercise therapy
- Anger management therapy
- Family therapy
- Meditation therapy
- Group therapy
These therapies and others are offered across all our addiction treatment programs. We offer a full continuum of care with our programs, including:
- Medical detox
- Residential or inpatient rehab
- Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
- Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
- Telerecovery program
- Aftercare program
Gulf Breeze Recovery understands addiction and has a program that addresses the individual needs of each guest. We have a well-trained professional staff and a holistic program that treats addiction and each person’s mental, physical, and overall health.
