Taking the first step toward getting treatment for drug or alcohol addiction can feel scary and overwhelming, with many treatment options available. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and other 12-step programs are often the cornerstones of traditional treatment for substance use disorder. However, this approach does not work for everyone. Gulf Breeze Recovery offers a non-12-step therapy program that provides a unique, individualized, and holistic option for treatment-resistant individuals stuck in a cycle of chronic relapse or simply looking for an alternative to 12-step-based treatment. ]
Our THRIVE® Total Health Recovery Program helps our guests uncover their natural strengths to overcome substance use and co-occurring disorders. Contact us at 833.551.2304 to learn how our innovative approach has made us one of the nation’s leading addiction treatment facilities.
What Are the Benefits of Alternative Treatment Options?
The 12-step approach to addiction treatment has been the standard for decades. While millions of people have been helped by AA and other 12-step programs, this approach does not work for everyone. At the core of 12-step programs is the belief that people are powerless over addiction and need to rely on meetings and other people to maintain their sobriety.
Through our non-12-step holistic approach, we at Gulf Breeze Recovery help guests discover and foster their innate strengths. We offer more counseling hours than industry standards, with therapy customized to meet your personal needs and goals in a welcoming, home-like environment with top-rated amenities.
The benefits of alternative treatment options include:
- Offering a comprehensive approach that addresses the whole person on a mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual level
- Utilizing the body’s innate wisdom to heal
- Experiential methods can uncover underlying issues that talk therapy might not reveal
- Many approaches help calm the overactive nervous system that often fuels drug and alcohol use
- Strengthening the mind-body connection helps integrate and embody new insights and changes
Addiction is a complex disease but is treatable. Gulf Breeze Recovery’s non-12-step approach to treatment gives people the tools to overcome substance use disorder and rediscover the health, happiness, and overall wellbeing they deserve.
Why Choose Alternative Treatment Options?
There are numerous reasons people shy away from 12-step based programs, from not wanting to self-identify as an addict forever to not wanting to identify as powerless. At Gulf Breeze Recovery, we understand that the relationship between our thoughts, emotions, and physical health constantly impacts our overall wellbeing. Thus, the symptoms of substance use disorders affect all areas of life. Too often, treatment focuses on reducing or managing symptoms rather than considering the whole person, leading to ineffective treatment and chronic relapse.
When incorporated into a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan, alternative approaches to addiction treatment help promote self-care that strengthens the potential for long-term recovery. Alternative approaches also:
- Encourage a healthy diet and exercise
- Can reduce the need for medications
- Do not have harmful side-effects
- Foster the development of coping skills
- Are easy to implement
- Promote relaxation and stress reduction
- Cultivate patience and tolerance
The techniques learned in non-12-step therapy programs can be practiced and performed outside of therapy sessions to manage situations that might trigger drug or alcohol use.
