Non 12 Step Alcohol Treatment and Alternatives to Alcoholics Anonymous

If you or your loved one has ever considered getting help for alcohol addiction, chances are the first thing that pops into your mind is Alcoholics Anonymous. While the AA program works for quite a few addicts, it’s simply not for everyone—and if you or your loved one has already tried AA and failed to recover in the long term, you may agree. But don’t give up. There are plenty of alternatives to Alcoholics Anonymous! Let the placement counselors talk to you about non 12 step alcohol treatment at 855-473-4227.

Why Choose an Alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous?

There are a number of reasons why some addicts simply don’t flourish in the AA environment and should seek non AA alcohol treatment. The most common include outpatient, faith and responsibility. In the AA program, patients typically meet anywhere from once a day to once a month and head home between treatment sessions. This can lead to a greater risk for failure, since the alcoholic still has access to alcohol and is still in a stressful environment.

There’s also the issue of faith. Alcoholics Anonymous asks alcoholics to heavily rely on a higher power for help through the process. That’s good for some people and not as effective for others. Even though AA says that “the higher power” doesn’t necessarily have to be God from any one faith, there’s still the issue of responsibility. AA teaches alcoholics that they have no power over their alcoholism. Other non 12 step alcohol rehab programs encourage alcoholics to take charge of their own lives.

Non 12 Step Alcohol Rehab Options

When you get on the phone with representatives at 855-473-4227, we’ll ask you a number of questions about your or your loved one’s preferences for treatment. We’ll also want to know about your or your loved one’s drinking habits and whether or not you or they have tried any recovery programs in the past such as AA. In our final analysis, we may recommend Alcoholics Anonymous alternatives that include any mixture of the following not seen in AA:

  • Inpatient treatment
  • Non-faith-heavy treatment
  • Taking responsibility for one’s own choices and believing in one’s ability to design an achievable plan for the future
  • Individual treatment
  • Treatment at a full-time facility as opposed to wherever the AA group can meet in a community
