Non 12 Step Rehabilitation Programs

The 12 Step approach to rehabilitating people from alcoholism or drug addictions is extremely well known and widely practiced around the world. It involves certain belief structures and styles of communication, but no one can deny they have been effective for curing addictions. For others, however, for whatever reasons, the 12 Step approach is not attractive or acceptable.

It could also be that somebody who has recognized one’s own addiction and has looked at the rehab options, including 12 Step, may naturally gravitate to an unconventional approach, one which is not invested in any single dogma or methodology. Many forms of non 12 step rehabilitation do exist.

It could be a sign of the times, and a sign of the people — both of which are going very fast and furious these days — that rehab options have emerged for our very modern minds. Basically, contemporary social psychology is arguably fragmented, relative to past generations who have undergone earlier treatments.

Any rehab program or system must change with the times, or, provide enough customization to patients with unusual circumstances, perhaps who need more privacy. One of the key benefits that recovering alcoholics and addicts who choose private rehab centers are afforded is the extra space and time for quality of life issues like balancing their overall lifestyles, improving physical fitness during detox, reflecting upon destructive and healthy relationships, or perhaps even opening the spiritual dimensions of life in their own ways.

Why Do the 12 Step?

There are personalities and situations for which a conventional 12 Step program may be the most effective. For example, troubled youth, people who are overly insecure, older patients, or any number of unique cases, could benefit from the discipline, structure and free acceptance within group dialogs that the 12-Step approach delivers (along with the ongoing support of each member’s sponsor and helper).

This is not for everyone, although it is designed to be thoroughly accessible to all. The fact is, you may be a person who could use more control despite the humbling position, and you could handle supplying more input concerning your own recovery. A non 12 step rehab program could be more effective in this case.

The main choice is whether to invest time, energy and money into a rehabilitation approach and methodology that you may not feel like continuing to include in your life after recovery (12-Step) even though that is the normal pattern — or, whether you can find an approach that is more adaptive, flexible, inclusive of many healing modalities, and, may even provide added physical comforts or ‘luxury’ features to make the experience more pleasant.

Programs at Luxury Beach Rehab

This rehab center begins each guest on a path from precise Diagnosis to the Detoxification and Rehab stages. This first step is vitally important, because each individual will have a unique examination of his or her main challenges that have resulted in severe attachment to substances. Some people will have a ‘dual diagnosis‘ that uncovers the need for more psychological counseling, since there are treatable mental disorders involved alongside the addictive traits.

Once the customized treatment regime begins, the stages of Counseling, Therapy, Nutrition, and Fitness are modulated in unique ways for each guest. This is a major advantage of non 12 Step programs that tailor a holistic, comprehensive, in-patient approach for people with unconventional requirements.

Or, it could be a simple desire to make rehab more enjoyable, taking advantage of this special time for deeper changes to occur. 12 Step programs may not allow as wide an aperture of healing, so to speak, nor offer as many personalized details and touches as the multidisciplinary system used at Luxury Beach Rehab.
