What is your philosophy regarding 12-step programs such as AA?

Community sober support is essential in treatment and imperative in continuing care and recovery support. Phoenix House clinical staff encourages clients to participate in self-help programs and provides lists of nearby locations and meeting times. All of our programs introduce 12-step orientation and encourage participation in on- or off-site groups and panels. Clients are presented with several self-help options, such as AA, NA, and CA groups, or Double Trouble for those with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. Participation in 12-step self-help groups is optional and not mandated for our clients.
