12 Step Alternative Recovery
While the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are seemingly synonymous with recovery, in 2021 we have realized that many people need an alternative to the 12 steps if they are to get truly sober. 12 step alternatives are no longer just “alternatives”, but rather, provide viable and meaningful pathways to achieving lasting sobriety and balanced mental health which may prove elusive for some with just the 12 steps alone. That’s why Centered Recovery was created, with its science-backed Interpersonal Neurobiology program which focuses on helping people understand their own psychological processes and a truly holistic recovery. But where do people go when they need 12 step alternative recovery residential treatment prior to an outpatient program like Centered? We have listed three of the top rated 12 step alternative residential facilities below for your convenience.
Best 12 step recovery alternatives
- Silver Ridge 4.4/5 — https://silverridgerecovery.com/
From their website: In the holistic addiction program at Silver Ridge, they view the body as a whole entity. It is not enough to heal the mind or body alone; both must be cared for when walking the road toward recovery. Holistic treatment emphasizes that it is not the substance itself that causes abuse and addiction, but the stresses of everyday life that push someone to seek extreme coping mechanisms. Treating addiction is important, but healing the person is critical. You must reshape the way you interact with the world and your own mind in order to fight the tempting factors that can lead to relapse.
