12-Step Facilitation

While the reasons for the effectiveness of 12-Step recovery are not fully understood, the empirical literature supports the use of 12-Step programs in the treatment of adolescent and adult substance use disorders. Therefore, each patient is encouraged to utilize the tools, skills, and fellowship offered by AA or one of the other many 12-Step recovery programs by attending 12 Step meetings, building a sober network, obtaining a sponsor, and completing the 12 Steps.  The progress each patient makes towards this goal will be monitored.
