Non 12-Step Detox and Rehabilitation Programs for Drug and Alcohol Abuse in D.C.

Created On Friday, 05, August 2016
Modified On Thursday, 30, September 2021

Within D.C., there are few options when it comes to drug and alcohol detox centers and rehabilitation programs. Some of them may offer a non-12-step program. Non-twelve-step means that the drug rehab program does not incorporate 12-step treatment methods and meetings within their drug rehab program. These particular facilities will utilize more individual approaches, educational based treatment, and other cognitive therapies to help their clients. Group counseling will still be used, however; it will not utilize the twelve-steps of addiction treatment.
