12-Step Programs

Banyan Delaware 12-Step Programs

The founders of Alcoholics Anonymous developed the 12 Steps as a program to help people progress through the various stages of recovery following an alcohol detox. They believed that only after the person was able to complete all 12 Steps would they achieve a lifetime of sobriety. These steps include making amends with people who were hurt from your addiction as well as accepting the help of a higher power. Although the 12 Steps were originally created to help people in recovery from alcohol, the program has been expanded and altered to help people in recovery from a variety of addictions like gambling and drug use. Traditionally, the program also has a spiritual basis, but some programs have moved away from such a strong religious tie.


Our Banyan Delaware 12 Steps Program

At Banyan Treatment Centers Delaware, we offer a modified version of the 12 Steps to address the needs of our patients and aid in the recovery of both alcohol and drug addiction. Providing a powerful spiritual component to treatment, our 12 Steps program in Milford can help patients heal in ways that extend beyond the physical and mental damage of substance abuse. For some, the 12 Steps can be eye-opening and lifechanging.

Our 12 Step meetings in Delaware are held regularly and allow patients to connect with like-minded individuals in treatment looking for spiritual guidance in recovery as well. These meetings help build a unique community of support as people in various stages of recovery can come together to discuss their struggles and progress on their spiritual journey. While our Delaware 12 Step program is encouraged but optional, many patients choose to attend 12 Steps meetings after their program ends to continue their progress and to stay on the right track.

Along with helping members connect with each other and with their spirituality, the 12 Steps can also help people reconnect with their loved ones. Addiction can cause damage to personal relationships as the addict places their addiction over their loved ones and consequently, hurts their loved ones in the process. Part of the 12 Steps program is taking accountability for these wrongdoings and making amends to those who were hurt by addiction. Over time, patients will learn to take responsibility for their actions both in the past as well as the future to help them repair their damaged relationships.


Beyond the 12 Steps Program

The 12 Steps can be a helpful resource for many people in recovery, but long-lasting sobriety from a substance abuse program requires healing on many levels. While our 12 Steps program in Delaware can aid patients with their spiritual journey in recovery, many people need more in the way of their physical and mental healing.

To ensure that all our patients’ needs are being met and the secondary issues related to their substance abuse problem are being addressed, we offer a wide selection of addiction treatment therapies and daily programming options. These programs range from psychotherapy to mediation and are led by trained staffed members who are experts in their specific fields. When combined, they help patients find comprehensive healing from addiction and work toward a happier and healthier lifestyle free from drugs and alcohol.
