Drug and Alcohol Recovery with the Twelve-Step Program in Puerto Rico

Twelve-step meetings are not necessarily required within a twelve-step program, yet; most facilities’ that utilize this approach relies heavily on group counseling and peer support groups for their patients. When a client finishes a twelve-step program, they do not have to attend regular meetings, although many recovering addicts do, in order to maintain their connection with sober and like-minded people.The twelve-step program has been in existence since 1939. It has since been used to help alcohol and drug addicts deal with their problems. This method has been adapted to deal with all sorts of addiction and many self-help groups have been created to emulate Alcoholics Anonymous.
