Self-Help Support Groups
We embrace a 12-step, abstinence-based approach to recovery. Clients are encouraged to participate in self-help groups that they can continue to attend after treatment as a means of support in recovery. These may include 12-step groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Emotions Anonymous.
At our treatment center in Pennsylvania, we also offer 12-step alternatives like Refuge Recovery, a nontheistic, Buddhist approach to recovery. Refuge Recovery offers a systematic practice and process to help people move beyond the suffering caused by the cravings that characterize addictions. Core components of this approach include compassion and meditation.
