Non 12-Step Rehab

While a traditional 12-step rehab model works
for many people, it does not represent the only
or even the best path for everyone.

Have you or has someone you love been down
the 12-step rehab path and continued to
struggle? Honey Lake Clinic can help.

Non 12-Step Rehabilitation Options

The most well-known of the 12-step programs is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), essentially a support group for people in recovery from alcoholism. AA (and similar 12-step programs) help individuals connect with others who also struggle, forming a network of peers working together and offering support to one another towards a shared goal—sobriety.

AA and other 12-step programs ask members to begin by admitting their lack of control over alcohol. In order to recover, individuals are urged to consider a higher power and find a spiritual awakening. While not based on a specific religion or faith perspective, 12-Step models like AA do have religious and/or spiritual undertones.

Non 12 Step Addiction Recovery

People who are new to AA are not asked to accept or follow these Twelve Steps in their entirety if they feel unwilling or unable to do so. They are asked to keep an open mind, attend meetings and read AA literature, in hopes they will find encouragement in their own substance struggles.

By design, the spiritual aspects and the higher power in AA’s (and other 12-step program’s) formula are not defined beyond “God as we understand Him.”

While many rehab programs offer faith-based or spiritual content as an aside, a truly Christian recovery program recognizes Jesus Christ, the Wonderful Counselor and Great Physician, as the foundation of the healing process. At Honey Lake Clinic, we don’t talk about a distant deity or nebulous higher power. We look directly to life’s source, Creator, Sustainer and Redeemer,  Jesus Christ.

Chronic Inpatient Non 12 Step Alcohol Rehab

Based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) developed in the 1930s, the 12-step approach to recovery has since become a classic model for support groups and has been integrated into many addiction treatment programs.

While traditional 12-step rehab models work for many people, they are not the best path for everyone. A non 12-step program might be best for you.

Medically supervised detoxification from drugs or alcohol—both on an inpatient and outpatient basis.

Medication therapy to minimize withdrawal symptoms and curb cravings.

Dual diagnosis or additional treatment for any coexisting meical or phychological conditions you may have.

Individual counseling with an emphasis on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), and other evidence-based therapeutic strategies.

Family counseling or couples counseling.

Participation in non-12-step support groups.

"God reached into the abyss-the darkness I was inn at the depth of my addiction-and showed me that He is real, and that He is there. I'd tried so many programs. In the end, it wasn't a program that was my breakthrough, it was God's love." —Sean, Eufaula, AL

Drug Rehab Non 12 Step Alternative Treatment

At Honey Lake Clinic, we recognize that every addiction is different and substances are different—alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription medications, and etc. This is why every one of our client’s treatment programs is tailored to meet his or her specific addiction and needs.

It is very important to realize that substance use and addiction don’t just occur in a vacuum. Abuse often begins as an attempt to self-medicate a deeper hurt. For real healing and recovery, the underlying causes of substance abuse must be addressed. To get at this underlying hurt and bring lasting healing takes a holistic—spirit, mind and body—approach to addiction diagnosis, management and treatment.

The Honey Lake Clinic Non 12 Step Rehab Recovery Approaches

Each adolescent patient at Honey Lake Clinic follows a course of treatment developed specifically for her needs. Charity Schramm, LHMC, MCAP, the Clinical Director of Honey Lake Clinic’s Adolescent Program explains:

“What we do here in the adolescent program is similar to what we do in the adult program at Honey Lake Clinic, but tailored to the very specific needs of girls between the ages of 13 and 17. Of course there is a strong educational component because these girls come to us while they are students in school, but the holistic approach is the same—our goal is to help girls grow spiritually, emotionally and physically.”

Our experienced staff, licensed therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists recognize effective treatment requires a faith-based approach, treating the entire self: mind, body, and spirit. This holistic approach offers our patients hope for a healthy and bright future.

We offer a Christian-based, customized treatment plan, support from dedicated staff, ample time to reflect, and numerous self-care activities.
