Can the 12 Steps Work for Non-Religious Individuals?

Although the twelve-step groups have helped many individuals around the globe to achieve and maintain sobriety, their focus on surrendering to a higher power has been an obstacle for many recovering addicts.

Perhaps it is the spiritual emphasis of 12 step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) that turns off a lot of individuals who are seeking addiction treatment, due to the fact that often times individuals seeking drug and alcohol addiction treatment do not consider themselves to be religious. It is a fact that many who are seeking addiction treatment don’t have to practice any formal religion or believe in a traditional deity to benefit from the principles behind the 12 steps. The 12 steps are based on the belief that addiction is a spiritual as well as a physical disease, and that believing in a higher power has been proven helpful in recovery. In this case, the higher power is defined by the individual member, not by the fellowship or specific religion, which makes the 12-step programs non-denominational.

It is the reality that some 12 steps groups have a distinctly Christian emphasis, in spite of the organization’s non-denominational orientation and this can make non-religious members feel pressured to accept definitions they are not comfortable with. Individuals who feel troubled or offended by a 12-step group’s approach to recovery, but believe in the value of the 12 steps, have the option of switching to a meeting more aligned with their believes and find a sponsor who shares those same believes. Even if the decision is that the 12-Step is not the right approach to recovery, the insight gained by attending the meetings with an open mind can be a valuabl experience that proves helpful for those on the path to recovery.

Whether or not you believe in a traditional image of God, the principles taught in a 12 step program can be a valuable resource for your recovery. Attending a few meetings and talking to members of a 12-step group can help you make your decision as to weather or not it is the right approach for you or not.

Below are the principles of the first three steps that has been controversial for many.

We admitted we were powerless over alcohol — that our lives had become unmanageable.

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to God as we understood God.

Finding the Right Drug Rehabilitation Center

Twelve Steps recovery is not an addiction treatment approach embraced by everyone struggling with drugs or alcohol. For those who can’t accept the spiritual foundations of the 12 steps, secular groups like SMART Recovery may be an option. When it comes to recovering from addiction to drugs and alcohol, the most important “step” is finding a reputable drug rehabilitation center that offers comprehensive treatment. Programs geared to heal the body, mind and spirit, are better equipped to help recovering individuals develop their own power to get better.

At Florida Center for Recovery, we provide individualized addiction treatment plans through our residential rehab. We help clients understand what is the cause of their addiction problems and work together to resolve those underlying issues.

Our addiction treatment programs are offered to male and female clients ages 18 and older. Call our admissions department to learn about our drug and alcohol rehab programs. Let our drug rehabilitation center help you or your loved one get the treatment needed for a lifelong recovery.

Alcohol Use in Pregnancy

Fetal alcohol syndrome is a condition in a child that results from alcohol exposure during the mother’s pregnancy. FAS is characterized by growth deficiencies (or, decreased growth), abnormal facial features (specific facial features), and central nervous system (or, brain) abnormalities. FAS falls under the spectrum of adverse outcomes caused by prenatal alcohol exposure called Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

There is no amount of alcohol that can be considered safe during pregnancy. It is important to emphasize to prospective parents and all childbearing-aged women, especially those who are pregnant, the importance of not drinking alcohol if a woman is pregnant or considering becoming pregnant. Based on the current research we now know the following:

  • Alcohol consumed during pregnancy increases the risk of alcohol-related birth defects, including growth deficiencies, facial abnormalities, central nervous system impairment, behavioral disorders, and impaired intellectual development.
  • No amount of alcohol consumption can be considered safe during pregnancy.
  • Alcohol can damage a fetus at any stage of pregnancy. Damage can occur in the earliest weeks of pregnancy, even before a woman knows that she is pregnant.
  • The cognitive deficits and behavioral problems resulting from prenatal alcohol exposure are lifelong.
  • Alcohol-related birth defects are completely preventable.

For these reasons:

  1. A pregnant woman should not drink alcohol during pregnancy.
  2. A pregnant woman who has already consumed alcohol during her pregnancy should stop in order to minimize further risk.
  3. A woman who is considering becoming pregnant should abstain from alcohol.
  4. Recognizing that nearly half of all births in the United States are unplanned, women of childbearing age should consult their physician and take steps to reduce the possibility of prenatal alcohol exposure.
  5. Health professionals should inquire routinely about alcohol consumption by women of childbearing age, inform them of the risks of alcohol consumption during pregnancy, and advise them not to drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy.

Thanksgiving in Recovery

Thanksgiving for recovering individuals have a special meaning. Those who have overcome addiction understand better than anyone else that nothing can be taken for granted. The steps taken to reach sobriety may have been endless but they know it was worth it. Even if the progress has not been perfect they take pride on the effort put forth so far.

We all should be appreciative for having the opportunity to celebrate this holiday together with family and friends.

We at Florida Center for Recovery ask families and friends to be open and supportive of your recovering loved one by making the necessary preparations that can protect your loved one’s sobriety beforehand. Family members should be open with each other about their gathering plans and be ready to make special accommodations that are welcoming to those in recovery.

When “recovery friendly” accommodations for the gathering is not a possibility, the individual should consider changing plans to avoid triggers, especially if he/she is in early recovery.

Our recommendation for those in recovery is that their plans for the holidays should include people who understand the situation. Maintaining meetings with your support group is particularly important for those struggling with their recovery. If you choose to be alone, it is perfectly normal, as long it is not due to depression or stress.

Spend the holiday with people who understand the situation. Try to attend support groups— many maintain meetings during the holidays because this season can be difficult. Some people enjoy the peace of being alone, only choosing to socialize when they feel ready.

Whichever way you decide to spend this holiday, don’t forget that thanksgiving is a good time to start reviewing your recovery journey and ask yourself:

  • Is there anything else I can do to strengthen my chances for recovery?
  • What past things or actions were helpful to my recovery?
  • What past things or actions were harmful to my recovery?

By reviewing the past, recovering individuals can look for things that may present a challenge and modify events and behaviors beforehand. Knowing when and where temptations will be luring and the situations that can lead to stress, anger, or sadness can help in preventing relapse.

Hope for the best, plan for the worst and be ready for everything. Being prepared is the best thing a recovering individual can do for his or her sobriety.

Wishing you the happiest of Thanksgivings and hope you enjoy this great holiday season!

Soul Recovery: 12 Keys to Healing Addiction

Read this book and enjoy the unimaginable and heartwarming nuances of human characters that we all have and can tap into at the time of distress and need.

EXCERPT 

Lost My Way–and Became Insane 

“I continued going to meetings almost every day. I was so afraid of getting loaded again, I could’ve just moved my bed into an AA meeting. I was fighting for my life, and my self-worth was non-existent. From where I stand today, I know that self-worth is a byproduct of integrity, clarity, balance, harmony and peace. Well, folks, that just wasn’t happening in my mental house- hold at this point. I wasn’t drinking and using drugs, but my addictive patterns were still my master when it came to the men in my life. If it wasn’t a man, it was food; if it wasn’t food, it was seeking approval, or addiction to the negative mental chatter in my head. Sometimes I had all of my obsessions going on at the same time. 

Boy, was I a mess. 

At this particular moment in my life, I was obsessed with Mark–my boyfriend at the time. An obsession is a thought that occupies the mind constantly. It’s a compulsive preoccupation with a fixed idea or an unwanted feeling or emotion, often accompanied by symptoms of anxiety. So obviously there was no room in my already cluttered mind for my daughter. Just when I thought, “Oh goody, I’m sober, I have a job and my own apartment, I can really focus on impressing Mark and make him love me,” my sister announced–out of the blue–that she was sending my daughter back home to live with me. I argued with her and begged for more time. She almost had to threaten me into taking her back. This was after my sister had taken custody of my daughter for two long years because I was deemed unfit to care for her prior to my sobriety. 

Here I was, two years sober and still saying, “I’m not ready to be a mother yet.” But ready or not, my daughter was coming home. Initially, I was happy to see her. The love I felt for her was real, but selfishness and self-centeredness were just as powerful. How was I going to see Mark whenever I wanted to? I only had one bedroom. How would I sleep with him if my daughter was home? 

My poor little girl thought she was going to be the center of my world when she came home–which was her rightful place. I would catch her looking at me out of the corner of my eye, and I could see such hunger and longing for my attention on her face. I would get angry with her for wanting more of me than I had to give. I was angry with her for making me feel that awful guilt in the pit of my gut, and I was angry because I knew she deserved so much more. I knew I was an awful mother, but felt as powerless against the urge to chase after Mark as I had when I was chasing the next hit of cocaine. 

So, I put my obsession for Mark first. It really wasn’t an obsession for this particular person, as I found out later in my recovery. He was just the misdirected focus of a wounded soul. 

I didn’t want someone to need or depend on me. I wanted to need and depend on someone that could take care of me– someone that could feed the insatiable hunger for approval and love I constantly longed for. I would choose people who resisted the job I had assigned to them–begging, manipulating and guilt tripping them into my needy world–all while ignoring the actual needs of my child. 

I was, to put it frankly, insane. 

Bill Wilson states, “The alcoholic cannot differentiate the true from the false.” 

Another word that can be used for “alcoholic mind” is an unconscious, obsessed mind–wounded, fearful, and yes, “insane.” The definition of insanity is “a complete lack of reason or foresight,” or “doing the same thing again and again, expecting different results.” 

If your insanity was never about drugs and alcohol, where in your life did this lack of reasoning and foresight play out? Are there times when you returned to the same unhealthy, abusive relationship over and over again, to the same gambling, shopping or eating habit again and again? How about just the recycling of painful and negative emotions that are keeping you stuck in an unfulfilled life? 

If the answer to that is affirmative, that my friend, is insanity with a capital “I”–a complete lack of reason and foresight. 

Lack of perspective and emotional balance doesn’t completely go away when you became sober, or even after practicing the 12 Steps. As again stated in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous: “There is a long road of reconstruction ahead.” Well, I was a little miffed at that. I thought that by getting sober, I would become a little like Mother Theresa, full of kindness and serenity. I thought all of my problems would go away. But the “reconstruction” had only just begun. 

I use the word “hypnotism” quite a bit in my work. I always thought it meant having someone sit in front of you with a swinging trinket, saying stuff like, “Follow the trinket until you become very sleepy, and when I snap my fingers you will hate brownies.” In a way this is true, but it actually goes a lot deeper than that. 

Hypnotism is described as a “sleep-like state” or “when someone’s attention is absorbed completely” in what they see. Addiction is like a hypnotic spell, with its own rules, patterns and obsessions. The spell of chronic fear, doubt, worry and low self-worth can be broken by practicing spiritual principles of meditation, forgiveness, making amends, and inner-child healing diligently and consistently. Through the committed practice to these healing tools, we have the opportunity to awaken to life’s truth–which is love, peace, balance and well-being. When that happens, we return to our natural state of wholeness and are restored to sanity. 

The Soul Recovery process reveals that it’s possible to be “restored to sanity,” because sanity or “right perspective” is your original nature–who you really were created to be in the first place. 

I believe with all my heart that insanity was not something you were created or born with, but was a state of mind that you learned, remembered, practiced and then experienced in your life. You were created out of and in the image of wholeness, magnificence, love, balance and order. You have simply forgotten this truth through years of practicing the opposite. It’s now time to reawaken to your wholeness as a perfect expression of Life.

What is Dry Drunk Syndrome?

Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS), also known as Dry Drunk Syndrome, is the process in which the brain adjusts to the chemical damage caused by alcohol after heavy drinkers stop drinking. PAWS symptoms include dizziness, slow reflexes and problems with balance and coordination. In fact, the term “dry drunk” comes from the fact that individuals dealing with side effects of PAWS at times may look like they are intoxicated.

Dry Drunk Syndrome can last for weeks, months, sometimes even years. Another symptom of PAWS is mood swings which often cause depression. Being proactive and learning how to cope with post-acute withdrawal syndrome early on in recovery is crucial for maintaining sobriety.

How to Cope with Dry Drunk Syndrome?

It is important for individuals recovering from alcohol addiction to keep up with their outpatient treatment. In addition, programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and SMART Recovery are supportive therapeutic approaches that have helped millions of people to sustain long term recovery. AA and SMART RECOVERY are just a few examples of programs that can support the recovery process. When attending a reputable inpatient rehabilitation program, recovering individuals are in the position to take advantage of a variety of experiences and activities known to promote total wellness. They may seem simple and unsurprising, but they work.

Get Healthy. Join a gym, take up a sport, join a biking team, try yoga and meditation (which can have mental benefits as well as physical ones).

Develop a Hobby. Take up on healthy cooking, gardening, learn how to build things and focus on the creative project. The goal is to fill the time you once spent drinking with activities that are enjoyable and interesting.

Adopt and Animal. If you love animals and don’t have one, this is a great time to adopt.  You may also volunteer to work at a local animal shelter.

Take Classes. Work on a degree, learn a new language or enroll in computer or art classes.

Spend Time with the Ones you Love. Reconnect with family and friends. Rediscover their likes and dislikes and plan fun activities that don’t involve drinking. Go to the movies, to a park, go jogging or walking.

The options are endless. PAWS should not weaken anyone’s chances of recovery. Focus, and commitment to a scheduled routine can make this challenging process easier and life enjoyable again.

Is Relapse Inevitable?

According to NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse), “The chronic nature of addiction means that for some people relapseor a return to drug use after an attempt to stop, can be part of the process, but newer treatments are designed to help with relapse prevention. Relapse rates for drug use are similar to rates for other chronic medical illnesses. If people stop following their medical treatment plan, they are likely to relapse. Treatment of chronic diseases involves changing deeply rooted behaviors, and relapse doesn’t mean treatment has failed. When a person recovering from addiction relapses, it indicates that the person needs to speak with their doctor to resume treatment, modify it, or try another treatment”.

Is relapse only common to substance abuse?

Data shows relapse rate for substance use is comparable to chronic illnesses such as hypertension and Asma. Substance abuse relapse rate is 40% to 60%, and the rate for the other above mentioned illnesses is between 50% to 70% which statistically speaking, they are very close to each other. (NIDA, Treatment & Recovery – Online publication). Substance use disorders should be treated like any other chronic illness and relapse should be considered a sign for resumed, modified, or new treatment.

What is the main reason for relapse?

Based on various research in the field of addiction and recovery, there are stress cues linked to drug use such as people, places, things, and moods. But the most important of all triggers is contact with drugs which is responsible for most relapses in those in recovery. The most vulnerable are the ones who are not up with their coping skills. Being addicted means being aware of every moment of the temptations of drug use. Coping skills thought in various treatment settings allow one to anticipate and generally come up with a counter move to reduce the chance of relapse. There are many who are tempted daily and successfully avoid relapse.

Is relapse the sign of failure in recovery?

Relapse is most certainly a setback and it should be considered a temporary one at that. As common as relapse is, there are thousands who relapsed and yet went on to successfully stop drug or alcohol abuse. These are the ones who are aware of the potential of relapse but the awareness helps them to navigate the dangers so they don’t get away from their goal of recovery.

How concerning is a relapse for a recovering person?

Relapse is not only going back to doing drugs. According to NIDA, “while relapse is a normal part of recovery, for some drugs, it can be very dangerous—even deadly. If a person uses as much of the drug as they did before quitting, they can easily overdose because their bodies are no longer adapted to their previous level of drug exposure. An overdose happens when the person uses enough of a drug to produce uncomfortable feelings, life-threatening symptoms, or death”.

How relapse can be prevented?

The goal for everyone in recovery is to successfully stop the drug abuse and not have a relapse. But, unfortunately, relapse does happen for many. The best tool for relapse prevention is coping skills thought during the treatment. However, change of behavior, circumstances associated with past drug use is a must for a successful recovery. Some of the changes that usually are recommended during treatment, based on each individual’s circumstances, are regarding one’s medical, mental, social, occupational, family, and legal needs. If there are issues in those areas which were influential in the cause of addiction and not addressed during the treatment or re-occur after the treatment, they can be a major concern for relapse. Scientists have been developing therapies to interfere with triggers that cause relapse and to help patients stay in recovery, and there are effective medications that currently can be used as well.

If you or a loved one is a chronic relapser Florida Center for Recovery offers a Chronic Relapse Program. For information please call us at 800-851-3291

You Can Motivate and Empower Yourself in Recovery

You can empower yourself instead of blaming heredity and environment for your addictive
behavior problems. Why not empower yourself with the kind of beliefs which research has
shown to be effective? Try saying the following things to yourself, firmly and repeatedly, and
then see how you feel:

  • Addictive behavior is a human problem with a human solution.

  • Don’t HAVE TO change, but I can sensibly decide that I WANT TO.

  • Lapses in the past do not prove that I will lapse forever.

  • I am not a moral degenerate for trying to be happy in stupid or self-defeating ways.

  • I am responsible for my thoughts, feelings, and behavior.

  • I feel and act the way I think based on what I believe.

  • I am the only one who can change my behavior. Others may help, but nobody can do it for me.

  • It takes hard work and practice, not miracles, to overcome addictive behaviors.

  • I may benefit from help, but ultimately it’s up to me.

  • I can change if I choose to, and I am willing to do the work and practice.

Motivation to create a more meaningful and rewarding lifestyle, plus a belief in your natural ability to change problematic behaviors which are getting in the way, are perhaps the most important factors in addiction recovery. If the above self-statements help you to feel more motivated to deal with an addictive behavior and more confident that you can do it, then SMART Recovery® is for you.

We at Florida Center for Recovery believe that for treatment to work the individuals must feel ready to embark on the recovery journey. We also believe in delivering compassionate care with dignity and respect. If you would like to explore addiction treatment options, feel free to give us a call at: 800-851-3291.

  7. One can still be in denial even if you agree that one has an alcohol problem—denial comes in many forms

  8. Just stopping drinking is an inadequate solution to a drinking problem—a lifestyle change is necessary

Family Therapy in Addiction Treatment

Attending Family Therapy in Addiction Treatment is an important component of recovery. In fact, research shows that behavioral health treatment that includes family therapy gets better results than treatment that does not. As a result, when combined with individual treatment, family therapy can help reduce rate of relapse, reduce psychiatric symptoms, and relieve stress.1

Family therapy in addiction treatment helps families become aware of their own needs providing genuine, enduring healing to all participants. Florida Center for Recovery’s (FCR) Family Program has one simple aim: to provide every recovering individual and their loved ones a space where they can repair the damage caused by addiction. Our Family Recovery Program has been designed to enhance the quality of our clients’ relationships with their families, friends and significant other. FCR provides family members with a forum to learn positive communication skills to address chronic issues and concerns, under the guidance of a professional mediator.

Objectives of Family Therapy in Addiction Treatment

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), there are two main goals of family therapy for addiction.1

  • Provide helpful support for the individual in substance abuse treatment. Family Therapy in Addiction Treatment decreases an individual’s chances of relapse, aids in the development and maintenance of positive behavioral and attitude changes, and promotes long-term recovery.

  • Improve the emotional health of the entire family. Through Family Therapy participants are encouraged to forgive past behaviors and establish trust. In addition, therapy aids in resolving conflict or feelings of anger, frustration and sadness. Also, family therapy extinguishes the sense of ongoing crisis and encourages participants to let go of negative emotions.

What to Do If a Family Member Does Not Want to Participate

It is important to realize that often times a family member may not want to participate in the treatment process. Although this may be a situation that can be resolved, ultimately, the decision to participate must be made willingly. In many instances, family members are fearful of being confronted, skeptical or tired from the ongoing addiction treatment efforts. If that is case, a counselor can contact the parties involved to try to persuade unwilling family members. While it can be very difficult to get reluctant family members involved in treatment, psychoeducational workshops and motivational interviewing are interventions that can soften resistance.

Get Addiction Treatment Help at Florida Center for Recovery

We understand families, often times, struggle to find the right words to say and the right action to take when it comes to dealing with substance addiction. Learning how to cope with, and support a loved one in recovery is what Family Therapy in Addiction Treatment is all about.
