Using the 12-Step approach at an alcohol treatment facility

12 Palms Recovery Center believes that the foundation for any quality treatment plan should revolve around the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, working in conjunction with other successful options.

For anyone who has ever experienced the devastation caused by the disease of alcoholism, they know all too well the damage it inflicts on their lives and the lives of their family and loved ones. Before the middle of the 20th century, alcohol treatment essentially consisted of taking a person who couldn’t control their drinking and locking them up in an institution, oftentimes an asylum.

When Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in 1935 by Bill W. and Dr. Bob, together they worked on a new and innovative way of a long-term recovery from alcohol abuse, and in 1939 introduced the 12 Steps in the book Alcoholics Anonymous. Soon after, some alcohol treatment centers started drastically changing alcohol treatment plans to incorporate the 12 Steps into their suite of treatment options. Today, there are a number of critics out there who claim that the AA model, and specifically the 12 Steps, is outdated and no longer effective. 12 Palms Recovery Center believes exactly the opposite.


12 Palms Recovery Center is a Florida alcohol rehab that believes strongly in the 12 Steps of AA, in fact their entire recovery program revolves around the 12 Steps.
