12-Step Program

12-Step Programs in Florida Drug Rehab

Safe Haven Recovery incorporates a 12-step treatment program into all therapy as an immediate foundation for return to a life of well-being. The 12-step program is based on the theory that compulsive people understand one another on a deep, cellular level. For example, these peers know where you’ve been, and they know thoughts that occupy your brain and keep your addictions alive. Furthermore, they’re willing to provide the kind of help that an outsider cannot understand.

Florida Drug Rehab is Only the Beginning

Florida drug rehab is a program that helps you get clean and sober. However, it is just the beginning of the recovery process. During drug rehab you learn about more than just the disease of addiction. You learn what your triggers are and how to handle them, how to cope with cravings and urges to use.

Here begins the process of self-discovery. Similarly, you uncover long-hidden fears and misguided beliefs that may have been holding you back from your potential. While you are in Florida addiction treatment, you are in a safe, secure and supportive environment. In other words, you have the proper setting in which to begin the healing process of recovery.

12-Step Programs Work

The reason most Florida drug rehab incorporate 12-step programs is we know working your recovery is the only way to be successful. At the same time, a 12-step program introduction is laying the foundation for working the steps and achieving long-term sobriety. Also, If you want to have a reasonable chance at long-term sobriety it is critical to develop a sound support network.

Who Are These 12-Step People?

The unknown is scary for each of us, when we have never experienced being in a 12-step meeting. Likewise, you may understandably be a little apprehensive. This holds true whether your first encounter with a 12-step program group is during addiction treatment or at a later time. Typical 12-step groups include Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. Both adhere to the same basic principles.

The people in the meetings are your neighbors and co-workers and friends – or people just like them. Addiction knows no boundaries. There is no line that’s drawn between the rich and famous and the suburban housewife or a homeless person. In other words, addiction punishes everyone equally.

In short, the people who attend 12-step meetings come from all walks of life. There are the newly-sober, those coming back into recovery after relapse, the long-time sober, and everything in-between. But, the one thing they all have in common is they can't manage their own lives without their sobriety. Also, they want to help support others with the same goal. Moreover, no one will pry into your personal circumstances. That’s why these groups have the word “Anonymous” in their names: Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Marijuana Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, and so on.

Anonymity is the Foundation of 12-Step Programs

Anonymity is part of the overall group philosophy. for instance, members of 12-step groups seek only to know you by first name. So, if you are at all worried about whether or not your personal identity will be compromised, you can dismiss those concerns right now.

Safe Haven adheres to the 12-step program concept and clients are transported daily to outside meetings as a critical component of their treatment. In fact, we are in driving distance to over 150 daily meetings in our area. Nonetheless, when you return to your family and community you will have a vital support group of people who will share their experience, strength and hope with you.
