As part of our expert treatment platform, Decision Point Center offers a 12 Step program that meets twice a week. Participation is mandatory for all clients. This draws the traditional 12 Step program into your everyday life, promotes trust among the group and a belief in the validity of the process. The 12 Step Program is not a treatment program in itself but rather offers a slice of treatment. The information that is provided through the 12 Steps through education and support has been proven to help stop substance abuse and relapse.
The 12 Step Program consists of more than 65 years of experience and is designed to not only aid in recovery but also to offer support to others in recovery. The 12 Steps are founded on spiritual principles but also offer direct recommendations for living a good life. The 12 Step Program is not religious nor does it favor any particular denomination or sector of faith. It simply acknowledges a “higher power.” Surrendering addiction to a higher power is the beginning of transformation. This is what the 12 Steps are all about.
