12-Step Program Facilitation
Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program”. Most substance treatment centers have their own 12 step program designed to help users achieve sobriety. Because of this, most treatment plans follow a similar pattern when broken down.
The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse. Steps 8 and 9 deal with the social and emotional repercussions of addiction, encouraging patients to make amends to people they have wronged. These are followed by two steps revolving around the further exploration and reinforcement of Steps 1 to 9.
The last step requires an individual to extend a helping hand to people who are still in the early stages of their recovery.
