Could A 12 Step Program Be Right For You?

Addiction isn't a choice. That statement may not seem groundbreaking today, but the idea of alcoholism as an illness was a new concept in 1939 when the book Alcoholics Anonymous was first published.

 

Today, the 12-step recovery model is a cornerstone in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. Evidence supports the effectiveness of peer-to-peer support mutual aid organizations such as AA and NA.

 

A study, sponsored by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), examined the effectiveness of various treatment types in reducing overall drinking and drug use, and concluded that the 12-step model resulted in the most significant long-term impact.

 

Below are four 12 step organizations that have helped countless millions around the globe recover from addiction to alcohol, drugs, and negative behaviors.

 

At Colusa County Recovery - we understand addiction because we've been there.
