What Is a 12-Step Rehab Program?

12-step rehab programs are based on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), a time-tested and proven approach to recovery from alcohol use disorder. The 12 steps of AA are a set of guiding principles that promote personal accountability and responsibility, helping individuals to take control of their lives and recover from addiction.

The 12 steps of AA include:

  1. Admitting that you have a problem and need help
  2. Accepting that you cannot control your addiction
  3. Deciding to turn your life over to a higher power
  4. Taking a moral inventory of yourself
  5. Admitting your wrongs
  6. Asking for forgiveness
  7. Making amends for your wrongs
  8. Resolving to change your ways
  9. Taking inventory of your life and surroundings
  10. Asking for help in making changes
  11. Seeking guidance from a higher power
  12. Sharing your experience with others to help them recover

While the 12 steps of AA are designed for recovery from alcohol use disorder, they can be adapted to any addiction.

If you are struggling with addiction, you may be wondering if a 12-step rehab program is right for you. There are many factors to consider when making the decision to join a 12-step program, including your personal beliefs and preferences, the severity of your addiction, and your treatment goals.

If you’re deciding if a 12-step program is right for you, know that 12 step meetings are:
