Description of the “12 steps” program

In our rehabilitation center, they do not resort to medication and coercion. The drug addiction treatment or alcoholism course is aimed at eliminating the psychological need for a stimulant, which guarantees the final victory over addiction and the patient’s return to a full life.

Group sessions and constant work with experienced psychologists help the patient to understand himself and his fears. Thus, the 12 Step program does not fight the symptoms of the disease, but the root cause of its appearance.

Step by step to recovery: program steps

While undergoing a rehabilitation course in our center, the patient follows the steps described in the “12 steps” program. Each step brings the patient closer to healing and inner harmony.

Step one

Acknowledging Our Powerlessness: The first step in the program for the addict is to admit that he is no longer in control of his own life. Understanding that we cannot save our lives on our own is the first step to our recovery.

Step two

In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.

Step three

The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.

Step four

The stage of careful introspection: the patient reveals his hidden fears and negative experiences to the group in order to understand the root cause of the development of the disease.

Step five

The patient accepts himself and his negative experience; he admits his mistakes not only to himself, but also to his loved ones and to God leading him.

Step six

The patient prepares for active actions aimed at getting rid of the disease. He understands that alcohol or drugs is not the cause of addiction. The reason lies in himself. You can defeat addiction only by changing yourself.

Step seven

Based on the experience of other members of the group, patients begin to correct their own behavioral patterns, correcting their shortcomings.

Step eight

The patient makes a list of the people he has harmed during his illness and prepares himself to apologize for the pain and make amends.

Step nine

The patient apologizes and compensates for the damage to all people offended by him. Thus, he gets rid of remorse and forgives himself.

Step ten

The patient develops the habit of constantly analyzing his actions and immediately admitting his mistakes. This is learning self-control and responsibility for his life

Step eleven

The patient continues his path of reflection. This allows him to develop the spiritual essence of the addict, his moral sphere.

Step twelve

The patient uses the knowledge gained during the course to help himself and other victims of addiction. He uses these skills in all areas of his life, thus achieving inner harmony and happiness.

Of course, the addiction treatment offered by the 12 Step program is a long and difficult path to self-improvement. But when facing obstacles and overpowering oneself, a person receives the highest reward – the final victory in addiction and a full healthy life.
