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 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.

Multiple studies indicate that in rural communities, the opioid overdose rate is 45% higher than in cities, per capita. Around 33% of people aged 12-20 living in rural areas misuse or abuse alcohol, compared to 28.5% of those living in big cities.   [Written by Colusa County Recovery]

LAUREN'S STORY

 

“The first picture is of me when I was in full blown meth, heroin and fentanyl addiction. Yes, I know the picture is raw and gross but this is REAL ADDICTION. A look of me at my lowest. Recently, I celebrate 9 months clean and sober!  Today, I can wake up every morning and I don’t have to worry about how I’m going to make it through the day. Today, I don’t have to worry about if I’m going to end up in jail. Today, I’m holding down a full time job. Today, I’m living on my own for the first time in my life. Today, I’m beyond happy with my life and don’t want to die every day. Today, I don’t cry all day, every day. HAPPY 9 MONTHS TO ME!”
