Florida Center for Recovery offers 12-Step Program coupled with targeted psychotherapy and other alternative treatments. The 12-Step program allows patients to measure their recovery goals one step at a time, thus supplying a positive reinforcement throughout the treatment.
What Is the 12 Step Program?
The 12 Steps was initiated in the 1930's as a way to overcome the onslaught of alcohol addiction.
This version of the 12 Step program below is an adaptation from the original 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, and is intended for general use for those coping with addictive or dysfunctional behavior.The 12 Steps
Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable
Step 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity
Step 3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understood God
Step 4 - Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves
Step 5 - Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs
Step 6 - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character
Step 7 - Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings
Step 8 - Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all
Step 9 - Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others
Step 10 - Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it
Step 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out
Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs
