Non-12 Step Drug and Alcohol Rehab

non-12 step rehabMany people enter addiction treatment seeking a Non-12 Step rehab for drugs and alcohol or alternative to 12 Step programming such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous). Those admitted to our San Diego rehab often tell us that they struggle with the labels of “disease” “alcoholic” and “powerlessness.” Also, wording contained within the 12 Steps makes reference God, and this can be alienating for individuals who are secular, or whose sense of faith has been weakened.

Others report past negative experiences with meetings where the use of drugs and alcohol were glorified, and these individuals also may have had a negative experience with a sponsor in a 12 Step program who did not meet their needs. In short, varying personal reasons have caused our clients to seek out our non-12 Step rehab program in San Diego.

AToN Center is a program that was founded on non-12 Step treatment principles. Therefore, our Center was designed as an evidence-based best practice model for treatment of addiction free from the barriers many people experience with 12 Step only treatment programs. AToN Center’s San Diego rehab offers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as the clinical underpinning to all of our groups. We discuss an individual’s potential to change from the basic premise that in order to change behavior, you first need to change your thinking and learn emotional regulation skills.

Our family therapy is conducted with a motivational and empowering approach instead of the typical Al-anon only format to group family “education.” We treat families and residents as individuals and offer the comfort and guidance of a clinician during private family sessions in our private drug rehab. We address spirituality not through “God-talk” but rather through mindfulness exercises that teach individuals how to center themselves and decrease impulsivity. Our rich program of on-site holistic care is also critical to decompressing and finding a centered space during a time at which the body, mind, and spirit needs to heal from toxic substance use in our California non-12 Step.

At AToN Center it is our promise that you can achieve successful outcomes without working “the steps” and by utilizing other practices offered in our San Diego, California non-12 Step rehab. Our SMART Recovery® programming and AToN Center curriculum approaches recovery in an open-minded and scientific manner which many find useful. We encourage discussion of relapse prevention from a clinically sound perspective and encourage those who have been limited by past exposure to 12 Step rehab treatment to expand their knowledge of themselves through our non-12 Step treatment offerings.
