12 Step Programs for Drug Addiction Treatment

Peer support systems are a critical component of treatment and play a powerful role as a part of mutual-support groups, including Alcoholics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous,  Narcotics Anonymous, and other 12-step programs.  Peer support programs during and following treatment can help maintain abstinence. 

The goal of 12-step program at Newsong Recovery is to complement and extend the effects of professional treatment. These groups can be particularly helpful during recovery, offering an added layer of community-level social support to help people achieve and maintain abstinence and other healthy lifestyle behaviors over the course of a lifetime.

A Personalized Recovery Plan

The 12-step method has been adapted widely by fellowships of people recovering from various addictions, behaviors, and mental health problems. Fellowships offered at Newsong Recovery include:

● Alcoholics Anonymous

● Adult Children of Alcoholics

● Al-Anon/Alateen, for friends and families of alcoholics

● Cocaine Anonymous

● Gamblers Anonymous

● Narcotics Anonymous

To create a successful outcome, 12-step fellowship engagement will be finely tailored to your own unique, specific needs.

What to Expect in a 12 Step Program

Newsong Recovery’s 12-step program is an active engagement strategy designed to increase the likelihood that residents become affiliated with and actively involved in 12-step self-help groups, thereby promoting abstinence. 

At Newsong Recovery, your residential treatment will begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine the most effective 12-step program based on your substance use and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems as well as your age, gender, ethnicity, and culture.

Individuals progress through treatment at various rates, so there is no predetermined length of treatment. Generally, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness. Treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.
