Drug and Alcohol Recovery with the Twelve-Step Program in California

How does one become sponsored?

A sponsor is someone who has sobriety experience, and has gone through a twelve-step program before, and continues to work with other recovering addicts. Sponsors help provide guidance and support for a new person within the program. They are there to help an addict get started with a twelve-step recovery group, and sponsor them onto the program or support group.

The 12-step program used in Rehab Treatments

The twelve-step program has also been incorporated in many drug and alcohol treatments to help clients deal with their addiction. This is often only one part of the addiction rehabilitation program. The drug and alcohol addiction treatments will often try to address the many facets of addiction to give the client the best recovery possible.

There are also alternatives to the 12-step program that have been developed over the years. You can contact the individual addiction treatment centers and ask them for the specifics to make sure the treatment plan fits your needs.
