12-Step Addiction Treatment

The battle to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction is a process. Rather than take on more than you can handle, it’s best to battle your demons step by step if you have to do so. To help you on this journey is the tried-and-true 12-step recovery program. This is one of the oldest and most successful forms of addiction treatment service used to overcome the various forms of substance abuse.

Our staff here at California Drug Rehab makes it a point to connect with those who need this type of rehabilitation treatment, and utilize this process to help people overcome their destructive habits.

Benefits of 12-Step Programs

When you seek help from a California rehab facility, you get first-hand experience with just how effective a 12-step program can be for your recovery. These programs offer you many benefits, such as:

  • The steps are universal. This helps you seek and obtain support no matter where you are in the world. If you experience a moment of weakness, there is a good chance that you can find somewhere to go for understanding and support to help you through this tough time.
  • The 12-steps act as guideposts for your progress. If you are a progress-oriented person, these steps can serve as individual milestones or goals you have attained.
  • If you battle addiction, these small victories help you choose to continue treatment.
  • You progress at your own rate. A 12-step rehab program does not mean you have to complete your steps in a certain time frame. Some steps are easier to complete than others. Just go at your own pace.
  • Many people continue to complete 12-step programs and go on to live clean, healthy lives. This could be an inspiration for you to choose a 12-step program.

Interesting Statistics about 12-Step

  • According to AA, 12-step facilitation is now applied to more than 300 addictions and psychological disorders.
  • AA estimates that as of January 2013, more than 1 million Americans regularly attended meetings.
  • There are more than 60,000 active twelve-step groups.

Here is an overview of each of the steps involved in the 12-step program:

Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable


Step 2: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity


Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God


Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves


Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs


Step 6: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character


Step 7: Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings


Step 8: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all


Step 9: Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others


Step 10: Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it


Step 11; Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out


Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs
