Non-12 Step Cure for Addiction. While 12-Step programs work for some, they’re not for everyone – and that’s okay. Some people may find that the 12 Steps don’t align with their views, or that they make some progress but still find themselves stuck in the cycle of relapse.
The core question we need to ask ourselves is: can we recover? Can we ever get past our disease, and be fully healed? Can addiction be cured? We’re here to tell you that you can, and there’s now a significant amount of scientific evidence that supports this.
We should point out that Non-12 Step doesn’t mean anti-12 Step. The 12 Steps have helped many people over the course of their existence, and The Sanctuary supports any avenue that helps people recover from addiction. However, we also understand that recovery is not a one-size-fits-all process. Many people who have been through 12-Step programs have found, for varying reasons, that they have not been effective for them. If you’ve completed 12-Step treatment before but still feel like something is missing, you may already be beginning to understand that you’re ready for a deeper experience of healing.
Our non-12 Step rehab program is designed to effectively treat addiction and resolve trauma, by integrating healing components for the mind, body, soul, and spirit for a complete recovery.
What is Non-12 Step?
The term “Non-12 Step” can be used to describe any addiction treatment approach that doesn’t adhere to 12-Step philosophy, which is rooted in the disease model of addiction. While this term in and of itself doesn’t provide a definition of what a program is, but rather what it isn’t, we can tell you what it means at The Sanctuary.
What differentiates our program from 12-Step programs is the entire paradigm that serves as its foundation. Rather than seeing addiction as the chronic, lifelong disease it’s often framed as, we believe that when healing takes place on a deep enough level, addiction can be cured.
