What is the difference between 12-step and non 12-step treatment?

Admin November 17, 2021

Twelve-step recovery programs ask participants to admit that they are powerless over their addiction and give themselves over to a higher power.  They also believe that once a person has become an addict they will always be an addict, recovery is a form of remission from an incurable disease.  This type of program has helped many people overcome substance abuse while others are seeking something different.

Non 12-step recovery at Exclusive Hawaii Rehab is non-secular in nature and encourages people to discover the strength within themselves to control their substance abuse.  We seek to understand the underlying causes of addiction rather than seeing the addiction itself as the center of the person’s difficulties. We help people heal from past trauma, cultivate greater self-awareness, and discover a new more empowered way of living.
