How We Use the 12 Steps at Maryland Recovery
At Maryland Recovery, although many of our patients participate in 12-step fellowships close by, please note that this is not required of every patient. Every patient’s treatment plan is highly individualized, so if 12-step meetings are not in their best interest, we help them explore comparable alternatives.
In fact, our clinical team holds a group meeting where we explore and explain the differences between several 12-step alternatives.
Recovery Groups to Consider
Our locale of Bel Air, Maryland is very supportive of individuals in recovery. So not only do Bel Air and Harford County offer a number of 12-step-based recovery meetings (such as Celebrate Recovery), but there are several non-12-step group options as well.
Some of the viable local alternatives to 12-step groups include:
At Maryland Recovery, we provide information and education on the differences between these groups so that clients can follow through with whichever path or organization they choose.
Just One Piece of the Larger Puzzle
Because of our recovery home-outpatient format in Bel Aid, MD, patients have ample time to attend 12-step or similar meetings each week. This is in addition to receiving treatment at our outpatient facility and possibly working a job or attending to school obligations during the week.
Twelve-step meetings, and their equivalent, are just one piece of the larger treatment puzzle at Maryland Recovery. We offer individual and group counseling sessions in addition to holistic activities such as drumming therapy and yoga. These offerings make for a comprehensive, personalized approach to addiction treatment that fosters the greatest odds of long-term sobriety.
