Battling addiction and substance abuse is more bearable using tried and tested methodologies that are established over the years. The 12-step model is a recovery program that has helped millions of people on their journey of recovery, by having participants follow a set of guidelines, and act as each other’s support network on the efforts of staying sober. Here, at TruVida Recovery, we offer programs that use the 12-step model as a core foundation. Because of the model’s years of existence, it is used in a lot of treatment centers similar to us.
General Steps to Recovery
General 12-step treatment programs follows the consecutive guidelines:
- Admission of powerlessness over the current problem as evidenced by the unmanageability in our lives.
- Believing in something greater than ourselves that can restore us to sanity.
- Surrendering our self will.
- Asking our Higher Power to cleanse us of our iniquities, and
- Becoming a better person while encouraging other addicts to follow the 12 Step program.
The Twelve Steps is the nations most recognized evidence-based addiction recovery group treatment. The process of attending and participating in meetings and working the steps with a sponsor have helped hundreds of thousands of people since it was established in 1935 by Alcoholics Anonymous.
The 12 Steps are as follows:
- We admitted we were powerless over our addiction, that our lives had become unmanageable.
- Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
- Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understand Him.
- Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
- Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
- Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
- Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
- Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
- Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
- Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
- Sought, through prayer and meditation, to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and the power to carry that out.
- Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
