What is your philosophy regarding 12-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA)?

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. While AA and NA are not part of our evidence-based professional therapy, they are supportive recovery elements encouraged by all of our programs. We make AA and NA literature available, encourage attendance at on-site and off-site meetings, and often include AA and NA participation as part of aftercare plans. We are firm believers in twelve-step recovery programs, but also recognize that they are not for everyone and may not be appropriate in every situation.
