Alcohol Treatment Center
A quality alcohol treatment center typically uses the 12-Step Program of Alcoholics as a platform to guiding a patient's recovery from compulsivity, addiction, or other behavioral problems.This program was created by the organization, Alcoholics Anonymous, and has been adapted by other groups such as Over-eaters Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Emotions Anonymous, and Co-Dependents Anonymous as the foundation for their respective 12-Step Programs.
The original program was published in 1939, and now boasts over 25 million copies in print in many different languages. Summarized by the American Psychological Association, 12-Step Programs used in an alcohol treatment center involves "admitting the loss of control over a compulsion or addiction, recognizing that a greater power can be a source of strength, examining errors done in the past with the aid of a sponsor, making the necessary amends for errors committed, living a new life guided by a new set of behavior, and helping others that are suffering from the same compulsions or addictions.
Twelve-step programs used by an alcohol treatment center represent the human structure symbolically into three dimensions, mental, physical, and spiritual, with diseases and disorders manifesting themselves in each dimension. The process is aimed at replacing self-centeredness with a growth in the moral consciousness, and the willingness to indulge in constructive action and self-sacrifice.
In 12-Step Program, a more experienced, recovering person is called a sponsor, tasked with guiding less experienced participants. Sponsors and sponsees(less experienced participants) participate together in activities leading to spiritual growths defined by the program. These activities may include the study of literature and discussions, meditation, and even writing. Completing the program and maintaining personal sobriety implies that one is competent now to sponsor a newcomer towards recovery.
