If you are looking for a 12 step addiction recovery program in Los Angeles, you are looking for the Above It All Treatment Center Twelve-step programs have long been an important part of the recovery process and the basis for many recovery programs. Developed over 65 years ago by a small group of alcoholics, the AA program provides simple tools for living based on a set of spiritual principles and a reliance on the fellowship of men and women who share their experience and offer support as part of a lifelong process of recovery.
A Twelve-Step Program is a set of guiding principles (accepted by members as 'spiritual principles,' based on the approved literature) outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a method of recovery from alcoholism, the Twelve Steps were first published in the book Alcoholics Anonymous in 1939. The method was then adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs.
Twelve-step methods have been adopted to address a wide range of substance-abuse and dependency problems. Step one involves releasing the denial, defensiveness and victim mentality that often accompanies an addiction. Step two focuses on optimism and belief in a solution and the possibility of successful recovery. Step three deals with relinquishing the obsession with control, another phenomenon that often accompanies addiction. It’s about turning self-will over to a higher power. Step four greatly increases the recovering addict’s self-awareness and moral center, helping to put life in a different perspective. Ideally, this step would continue to develop throughout the entire recovery process and for many years thereafter.
