The 12-step program is credited with helping thousands of people recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Our 12-step program is evidence-based and pairs psychotherapy with divinity to recover from addiction. Anyone can practice the 12-step model. We emphasize recovery and your personal spirituality.
Harbor Village offers a safe space for recovery and helps clients overcome the underlying causes of addiction. The 12-steps in particular help clients surrender guilt and blame to a higher power to seek recovery. Therapy helps correct negative self talk, establish healthy coping skills, and reconnect clients with their authentic selves.
Our 12-step addiction recovery program follows the traditional model and emphasizes on admitting one’s powerlessness, acknowledging short-comings, and making amends to those one has wronged.
Throughout treatment you’ll learn how to healthily regulate your emotions, and positively cope with depression, anger, and anxiety. Our approach is holistic and includes recreational therapies to reconnect with one’s higher self to create the change necessary for sobriety.
The 12 steps are as follows, from a first person perspective:
Although there may be subtle differences of how the 12-steps are approach in a recovery environment, the 12-steps are widely celebrated and credited by thousands for helping them achieve long-term sobriety. Our 12-step program couples the above steps with individual therapy and aftercare planning.
Once you arrive to treatment you will undergo inpatient medical detoxification upon arrival. During the detox period, which typically lasts from seven to ten days, you will experience withdrawal from your substance of choice. We offer medical monitoring around the clock and treatment for the sometimes painful symptoms of withdrawal. Attempting to undergo detox on one’s own is dangerous and can be life threatening in some instances.
After completing detoxification you’ll begin the brunt of recovery in residential inpatient treatment. During residential care clients participate in individual, group, and recreational therapy to target all aspects of addiction and continuing wellness.
Our programs are based around cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and teach clients how to regulate their emotions, make healthy decisions, and reframe their state of mind.
Because the 12-steps is largely a group affair, those who enroll in our 12-step program may expect to participate in group therapy daily. Group therapy helps clients develop empathy, resonate with peers, and draw strength from the shared experiences of others. Many who meet in rehabilitation and commit to the path of sobriety long-term remain friends for a lifetime.
By completing the 12 steps, you’ll find yourself deeply in tune with your immediate, ongoing, and future needs to live a healthy, productive life — without the use of addictive substances.
