12 Step Program
12-Step Program at Banyan Heartland
The 12-Step model of treatment is a common approach to substance abuse care, and utilized by countless centers throughout the United States. Traditionally, this model follows the original methodology of Alcoholics Anonymous, but can be utilized for any addiction. The main ideology behind the 12 steps is to rely on others in the program to help one another abstain from their addiction; the process of recovery can never be done alone.
Banyan Treatment Center Heartland provides an effective 12-Step Program, in conjunction with other philosophies and behavioral therapies. This form of care is structured to help individuals with any kind of addiction achieve lasting sobriety. In time, as patients become accustomed to the daily practice of the 12 steps, they are able to maintain a healthy lifestyle, free from addiction.
Core Beliefs and Program Goals
At Banyan Heartland, our 12-Step Program focuses on the core principles and beliefs set out by the founding members of Alcoholics Anonymous. Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith believed that recovery could only be achieved after certain steps were taken; most importantly, one has to come to accept that willpower alone could not set them on the path of sobriety.
Recovery involves the individual fully surrendering to their disease and be willing to take certain steps. Some of the key elements laid out in the 12 steps include admitting one has a problem and is powerless over it, coming to believe in a power greater than oneself, making amends for past behavior, and helping others in the program. Essentially, sobriety is about healing mind, body, and spirit. Once a person is willing and able to accept help, the healing process can begin.
Individualized Addiction Treatment
The treatment specialists at Heartland recognize that each patient comes to us with their own unique set of circumstances. Therefore, we tailor all treatment programs to fit each individual’s needs. Our 12-Step Program is designed to address and treat all addictions including, substance abuse, alcoholism, compulsive gambling, sex addiction, and more. Regardless of the battle you are facing, our team is dedicated to providing quality and comprehensive services.
During our 12-Step Program, patients will begin by admitting they have an addiction and are powerless over it. After that step has been taken, individuals are able to begin evaluating themselves, their past behaviors, and learn to accept responsibility for their actions. This includes how their addiction has negatively impacted the lives of those around them, such as family, friends, and co-workers.
The primary goal of this program is for patients to gain the insight and strength needed to maintain a life of long-term sobriety. As a result of the 12 steps and other therapies offered at our facilities, patients learn how to cope with challenging situations as they present themselves, as well as strengthen their emotional, behavioral, and spiritual lives as a whole. As patients begin to heal and pick up the pieces of their past, they become empowered to lead healthy, productive lifestyles.
If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction or mental health, it is never too late to change your life.
