Twelve Step Facilitation Therapy is a structured, individual driven therapy used to initiate the recovery process for individuals with alcohol abuse, substance abuse or other addiction problems. The therapy module is based on the spiritual, thought and action principles of the 12 step fellowship programs, such as Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous. Through 12 Step Facilitation Therapy the individual will acknowledge that willpower cannot sustain recovery, that a need to surrender the fight of addiction and a spiritual guidance is needed to promote long term sobriety. There are two goals for 12 Step Facilitation Therapy that are focused on with each individual: 1) accepting that he/she must completely abstain from alcohol or drugs and 2) become willing to attend 12 step fellowships and actively participate in a program of recovery.
Wellington Retreat incorporates a 12 Step Facilitation Therapy model with all individuals for whom addiction has taken over their lives. This modality starts from the first day and is reinforced throughout treatment at Wellington Retreat either supervised in facility or outside of the facility.
