Alcohol & Drug Abuse Support
via 12-Step Programs

The objective of our residential treatment center is to introduce residents to the benefits of participating in 12-Step programs for alcohol & drug abuse support such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). 12-step programs have long been an important source of alcohol & drug abuse support, and have helped millions of people maintain their sobriety. These programs provide simple “tools for living” based on a set of principles and a reliance on the fellowship generated by people who share the same experiences.

Group counseling for alcohol & drug abuse support at our treatment centerTwelve-step groups assume an active role in the process of recovery, and in so doing, address three dimensions of the human person: physical, mental and spiritual. The process begins in the first step as participants identify themselves as an alcoholic or an addict. The ultimate goal in completing the 12-Steps is to replace a self-centered mentality with key elements for a successful recovery.

Residents at St. Joseph Institute  will learn the benefits of "working the steps" and attend both AA and NA meetings for alcohol & drug abuse support.  In this way they will be able to determine the role that this program should assume in their personal recovery plan.

Key Elements of 12-Step Programs:

  • Mutual help and mutual support are available to assist people in meeting common goals and preventing relapse.
  • There is security in knowing that alcohol & drug abuse support is available everywhere and anytime people feel temptation.
  • Those who attend meetings will get help in learning to accept personal responsibility – a lesson that can be difficult.
  • Fellowship is an essential part of the program function.
