Traditional 12 Step Drug and Alcohol Recovery

 

Drug & Alcohol Recovery

My research based 12-Step Support approach is grounded in the concept that addiction is a spiritual and medical disease. Clients work individually with me to learn how to establish a firm foundation in a 12-Step program such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or Al-Anon. My approach is consistent with the 12-Step Programs, with primary emphasis given to Steps 1 through 3. I emphasize communication skills and educate clients on how to utilize 12-step meetings, acquire sponsorship, and understand concepts such as the "12-steps", "powerlessness" and the "Higher Power." Depression, anxiety, couples issues, family issues and other problems are also addressed as necessary. Total abstinence, meeting attendance and self identification as an alcoholic or addict are core components of this work. Material introduced during treatment sessions is complemented by reading assignments from 12-Step literatures.
