12 Step Recovery Programs
The 12-step program developed by Alcoholics Anonymous is used as a base to develop treatment protocols for drug and alcohol dependence. The following principles are used in many programs for recovery:
- Abstinence from all illicit substances
- Recognizing there is no self-control over addiction.
- Recognizing addiction is compulsive behavior.
- Surrendering to a higher power.
- Listing past transgressions with the help of a sponsor
- Making amends for transgressions.
- Learning to live sober through positive behaviors.
- Committing to help others addicts who are suffering from addictions or compulsions
Since the most effective recovery programs focus on behavioral modification, these eight basic principles help pinpoint how behavior can be modified by first acknowledging the issues. Regardless of the emotional and environmental causes of addiction, the focus stays on modifying present behavior to move forward successfully in sustained sobriety.
Models of Behavioral Treatment in Recovery Programs
There are three highly effective behavioral therapies used in addiction treatment.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): The focus is on behaviorism and cognition (thinking). Actions to eliminate negative behaviors and thinking are developed. Rational thinking isn't a factor, it is considered unreliable due to prior experiences and conditioning. External stimuli plays an important role in behavior and can override rational thinking. Specific actions to address problems are developed. Positive and negative reinforcement are used to encourage appropriate behavior.
- The Motivational Interviewing (MI) Process: MI attempts to motivate an individual to modify behaviors. It works on resolving ambivalent feelings into healthy behaviors. If ambivalent feelings aren't resolved, it can lead to relapse. MI counselors directly influence individuals to make specific changes to address issues. It doesn't address exploring the reasons why destructive behaviors occurred.
- The Motivational Incentives Process: MIP first identifies behaviors needing modification. Then, levels of incentives are planned. Goals are set when to give incentives and incentives are given to the individual when appropriate behavior is displayed.
