Drug Rehab Centers with the Twelve Steps Program in Manitoba

When considering a Twelve-step treatment facility, it is important to understand that most centers use a faith-based approach.

Yes, they have a long history of helping people overcome every form of drug addiction and substance use. Twelve-step drug rehab programs are successful because they create group support during treatment and recovery. However, 12-step drug rehab programs are not for everyone. An addiction assessment is the best way to determine if a 12-step program works.

Most group meetings involve 12-step facilitation therapy. However, many other forms of group support do not involve 12-step facilitation. For example, family support groups or peer support for recovering addicts. These types of group support may not incorporate the 12-steps as it is a different form of support and help.

No, not all drug rehab programs use 12-step group meetings or 12-step facilitation therapy. While 12-step is effective, it is not the right choice for every person. Private and public drug rehab centers offer other forms of counseling, such as behavioral therapies and experiential therapy.

The same approach should be taken as with any other drug rehab program; if it does not work, it is important to consider other options. Twelve-step facilitation is not for everyone. If it is not working out, work with the counselors and therapists to find another option.
