Many recovering addicts continue to receive therapy even after finishing a substance abuse treatment program. Post-rehabilitation programs enable individuals to build robust support groups, practice healthy coping mechanisms, and gain new skills and techniques for drug and alcohol abstinence. Many people choose to join 12-step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). You can find these programs scattered throughout the country. No matter where you live, you should be able to locate a 12-step program that allows you to receive peer-based support and connect with other recovering addicts.
Clients at United Recovery Project can attend 12-step programs while receiving treatment in our luxury rehabilitation center. We also help them identify a 12-step program that they can attend after completing our drug and alcohol treatment program. However, some individuals may be apprehensive about joining a 12-step facilitation program, especially in the early stages of their recovery journey. Therefore, many rehabilitation centers offer 12-step facilitation therapy – a prerequisite to a 12-step program.
