12 Step Program
12-Step Program at Banyan Chicago
Traditionally, the 12-Step model of treatment follows the original Alcoholics Anonymous methodology. This is a common form of addiction and substance abuse treatment, used by about three quarters of treatment programs. The main ideology behind the 12-steps is to use others in the program to help each other abstain from substances, and that healing cannot be completed alone.
At Banyan Chicago, we utilize an effective 12-step program that includes a structured, systematic approach to help people with any kind of addiction to achieve sobriety and self-happiness. The long-term goal during this program is to guide people on the path to recovery and the ability to maintain an addiction-free lifestyle.
Core Beliefs and Program Goals
The 12-Step programs offered at Banyan Chicago are centered around core principles that include reaching out for help from others to aide in the recovery process, and that willpower alone may not achieve lasting sobriety. Recovery involves the process of spiritual guidance and each step must be taken seriously to successfully reach sobriety. Each 12-step program has specific goals during the treatment process, and the first goal for all individuals struggling is to accept the problem and the need for abstinence. This program requires the individual ultimately surrenders or recognizes the need to engage throughout each step of the process to achieve the long-term goal of lasting sobriety. Remember: You are not in this fight alone. Accepting the need for help sets you up for success.
