12 Step Recovery in Orange County Explained

12-Step Recovery in Orange County Explained

Getting and staying sober requires a complete change in how you approach your life, and it takes ongoing support to sustain the changes. Peer support recovery groups are a vital part of long-term recovery and are open to everyone. Addiction is a very isolating disease. However, 12-step recovery in Orange County allows you to connect with others in recovery. By building a network with others on the same path, you increase your chances of staying sober. You will also begin to learn how to build friendships in sobriety and be of service to others. At Laguna View Detox, we start your treatment with your long-term recovery in mind and understand the importance of integrating 12 step recovery into treatment.

What Is 12-Step Recovery in Orange County? 

While most associate 12-step recovery with Alcoholics Anonymous(AA), there are many more groups today than when AA was established. In addition to AA, you can attend Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous, Crystal Meth Anonymous, Marijuana Anonymous, and many more groups. There is also 12-step recovery in Orange County for those who love someone who struggles with addiction or alcoholism. Groups like Al-Anon, Adult Children of Alcoholics, and Alateen support the families and loved ones of addicts and alcoholics. Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12-step recovery programs are built on the premise that the only thing required for membership is to stop drinking or using drugs. While many struggle with the concept of God in 12-step recovery, it is essential to note that you are allowed to create your version of a Higher Power. Alcoholics Anonymous and the programs patterned after it do not align themselves with any specific religion.

We rely on 12-step recovery in Orange County because it is incredibly accessible, open to all,  and free.
