12 Step Facilitation Therapy


A twelve-step program is a set of principles outlining a course for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioural problems. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous, twelve-step methods have been adopted to address a wide range of substance abuse and dependency problems. Now a fellowship of millions that extends worldwide employs twelve-step principles for recovery. Research has shown that the quality of recovery from all addictive and mental health disorders is enhanced by the many components of the 12-Step Programs, such as mutual support, honesty, accountability, acceptance, and spirituality. 12- Step therapy, adopting its main premise from AA, is based on the understanding that addiction is a disease and recovery involves admitting that one cannot control one’s addiction anymore, recognizing a higher power that guide and support, examining past errors and making amends for them, all leading to learning a new way of life and helping others who struggle with addictions.
