The treatment philosophy at Origins provides a firm foundation for 12-Step recovery. Addiction is a chronic, neurobiological disease that affects the mind, body and spirit. Like other chronic diseases, it is a progressive illness, and, if left untreated, it can be fatal. But there is real hope for recovery and a new, more fulfilling life.
Addiction can be successfully managed and treated—we do recover. Treatment for addiction is not a quick fix but rather becomes the platform for stability and engagement in your own recovery, one day at a time.
What is holistic treatment?
Holistic treatment addresses all aspects of the person using the 12-Step model. The 12-Steps are a spiritual program of action that can change our perceptions, and bring new purpose into our lives. By connecting with a deeper sense of meaning, those of us in recovery are able to positively impact the lives of those around us.
We have found in clinical treatment that the 12-Step philosophy is a vital part of permanent sobriety. When a person maintains a 12-Step practice, including getting a sponsor and working with others, relapse prevention is not only possible, but real recovery occurs.
12-Step practice is central to all of Origins’ drug and alcohol treatment programs, whether residential or outpatient.
The 12-Step philosophy grew out of the development of practice and beliefs crafted by Bill W. and his fellow alcoholics; it is presented in the book, Alcoholics Anonymous (The Big Book).
There are a number of groups based on the 12-Step philosophy, including this partial list:
Programs for those affected by a loved one’s addiction include:
AA is the most widely available 12-Step program, and meeting times and locations are easily found on the Internet. Our Continuum of Care staff provides recommendations for solution-based meetings with a solid foundation of support. At Origins Behavioral HealthCare, you will be connected with a potential sponsor and attend meetings before discharge.
