12-Step Support Programs
By attending 12-Step support groups, you’ll increase your odds for recovery by surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals who embrace love, tolerance and respect. Regardless of your past, your future is bright. By seeking out 12-Step Support Program at Novo Detox, you’ll be able to get the support you need to facilitate your recovery in a safe and respectful setting.
Starting out on the path to recovery can be tough. It’s one thing to admit that you have a problem. It’s another thing to reach out and get professional help.
When you finally come to terms with your alcohol or drug addiction, it’s easy to feel discouraged or alone. The US Surgeon General released a report suggesting that nearly 1 in 7 Americans have substance abuse problems. Of that number, it’s estimated that only 1 in 10 will ever seek out professional help.
Don’t let yourself become a statistic. If you’re abusing drugs or alcohol, the best time to get help is right now. Luckily, Novo Detox in Los Angeles is one of the best 12-Step Support Programs in the country for substance abuse recovery.
What can 12-Step Groups Offer an Addict?
Contrary to popular belief, addiction is a disease and it specifically impacts the “Fight or flight” part of your brain. When you begin to understand how all addictions are similar, you’ll be able to retrain yourself with specific coping mechanisms that can help facilitate your recovery.
Nearly a century ago, the Alcoholics Anonymous support group was formed. More commonly known as AA, these meetups embraced a 12-Step approach to help alcoholics deal with their addiction.
The success of these 12-Step meetings helped spawn Narcotics Anonymous. Millions of people all around the world have beaten their addictions using the principles they’ve practiced in these anonymous 12-Step meetings.
What’s also important to note is the support and accountability you’ll gain from attending these kinds of meetings. Trying to beat an addiction on your own can feel nearly impossible. When you surround yourself with a group of supportive individuals, choosing to make these lifestyle changes can help increase your likelihood of recovery.
