Non-12-Step Treatment Center
Decades of research prove that non-12-step treatment is the true path to recovery and freedom from addiction.
Traditional 12-step models of treatment work backward, hoping to resolve the causes of addiction by eliminating the symptoms. As you might imagine, results from using this method are mixed. The pain may be masked, but often the problem still lurks within.
At Aspire Addiction Recovery Centers, our treatment programs are based on the philosophy of treating the whole person. Through research-based protocols, we understand that practical transformation is the key to healing and wellness that lasts a lifetime.
Understanding the Nature of Addiction
Scientists and researchers are split on the reason we develop addiction. Some believe addiction to be a cognitive/emotional condition; others insist that it’s a biological (medical) condition, like any other disease. Still others cite research that demonstrates the genetic origins of addiction.
Today, the field of epigenetics helps us understand that each of these factors contributes to substance abuse and addiction.
You may have genetic markers that make you more prone to becoming an addict. Until (or unless) mental or environmental forces activate those markers, however, addiction won’t occur. And while we can’t change our genetic makeup, we can address the influences that guide them.
The Non-12-Step Treatment Difference
Traditional 12-step programs, long regarded as the gold standard in addiction recovery, work well for some addicts. If you are spiritually aligned with the philosophies of the anonymous-type programs, and if you are willing to place the program above all else in your life – it can provide a path to recovery.
With a 12-step program, however, you have little latitude for being human. One bump in the road takes you back to the beginning and philosophically erases any progress you may have made. We know from decades of research that no “one-size-fits-all” approach works for treating drug and alcohol dependence. The only successful path to addiction recovery is a program tailored to meet your individual needs.
Dependence on alcohol or drugs emerges from a combination of underlying issues. Our programs go beyond the superficial and address the dependence itself to help our clients uncover the roots of addiction. Then together, we develop realistic strategies for resolving these issues.
Non-12-Step Treatment Gives YOU the Power
The theoretical foundation of the 12-step approach views the addict as powerless in the face of his or her addiction. Not only does this approach strip participants of personal responsibility, but it requires that they voluntarily surrender control to a higher power.
What motivates you to make lasting changes in your life may not be what motivates someone else. Recovery is an intensely personal process. And by finding your true motivation for overcoming your dependence on drugs or alcohol, you will learn to rely on your inner resources for your future health and happiness.
