12 Steps Program
Alcoholics Anonymous developed the 12 steps program in 1935 and since then, it has expanded around the globe and is considered as one of the most effective therapy for treating addiction. This therapy is based on the works of Bill Wilson, who is the co-founder of the Alcoholics Anonymous and Dr Robert Holbrook Smith.
At Les Mariannes Wellness Sanctuary we consider the 12 step as a roadmap with a compass that helps an addicted person to realise that he needs help from a “ supreme intelligence “ and that he must put himself right first and then he can move on from his previous addicted state.
We have witnessed amazing transformations by blending the 12 step approach with yoga, meditation, acupuncture and reiki. The person becomes “realigned” so to speak in a very short time.
How We Use the 12 step program in Treating Addictions
12 Step Therapy works by bringing about a dramatic change in the individual’s thinking. In its simplest form, the individual recognizes and admits that he or she can no longer control their addiction; this is the first step in recovery.
The next phase of genuinely asking for help opens the doors to self-introspection which leads on to honesty, open-mindedness, compassion, and altruism. The 12 Steps helps us to “REBOOT “ the addicted person so that he can find a way out and at the same time become a much stronger person, more self-reliant and ready to face a new life, empowered with renewed faith and vigour.
We find in the 12 step approach a powerful tool to help an addicted person resurface to being a loving, caring person, far away from the addicted mindset.
For health is about restoring balance- mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual. Below is a simple picture that illustrates this life changing journey for the addicted mind.
