You Need Today
If you have found that you or your loved one has not been able to connect with the 12 step philosophy and treatment elements, there are other non 12 step programs that have been designed with different approaches. The most common non 12 step based program is a Dual Diagnosis rehab program or Evidence Based Rehab programs. The difference between a 12 step program and a non 12 step program is that the core of the treatment elements is not based on 12 step elements and primarily the group process. Most evidence based treatment rehabs focus on the underlying mental health and addiction conditions as the core center of the treatment program. For people who are suffering from more severe mental health conditions and need a higher level of care, a non 12 step program might be the most appropriate option because they will need more individual time with a psychiatrist and therapist.
The Non 12-Step Rehab Elements
Most non 12 step rehab facilities will provide an individualized treatment plan and holistic approach. The treatment will typically provide individual assessments, individual cognitive behavioral therapy sessions, group processing therapy sessions, experiential therapy, and Smart Recovery support groups. Smart Recovery is different from the 12 step support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous because it is not based on 12 steps. Smart Recovery focuses more on self-empowerment and tools to reach self-reliance. A non 12 step treatment program is an excellent option for someone who has tried other 12 step programs and has not found it effective or they are not interested in the 12 step philosophy. There is no one size fits all program, and, having the choice between a 12 step program versus a non 12 step facility, gives you or your loved one an informed choice.
