What are AA and NA programs?

AA and NA are 12-step recovery programs founded by addicts and alcoholics looking to solve their substance abuse problems. Through much trial and error, they found a solution to their addiction problem. Part of that solution was sharing their message of recovery with the alcoholic and addict still suffering from their addiction. This message has spread across the globe and has given the gift of recovery to countless people who before found themselves in a hopeless state of addiction.

AA and NA are rooted in the notion that substance abuse is merely a symptom of an underlying spiritual malady. The goal of the 12 steps is to alleviate this malady through self-examination and reconnection with a higher power. A newcomer to the rooms of AA or NA will be guided through the 12 steps by a sponsor, someone with at least a year of continuous sobriety who has been through the steps themselves and who has an active relationship with their sponsor. After completing the 12 steps with your sponsor, you will go on to carry the message by sponsoring other newcomers, offering them hope that recovery is possible.

In addition to the 12 steps, the rooms of AA and NA offer camaraderie for the alcoholic and addict. For perhaps the first time in your life you will be in a room full of people that truly understand the disease of addiction you are suffering from, and who have found reprieve from the bonds of addiction. Members of AA and NA delight in offering hope and support to the newcomer, as it reminds them of where they once were in their own recovery. You will be hard-pressed to find a better source of support and guidance as an addict than 12-step recovery meetings.

AA and NA are tried and true recovery programs for those seeking long-term sobriety. The 12 steps of AA and NA have helped millions of people across the world achieve solid, stable sobriety as long as they thoroughly work all 12 steps. At Evolutions Treatment Center, we believe that a 12-step program of recovery is a great way to secure your sobriety, in addition to continued therapy and medical assistance as determined by your clinical team. Through treatment and the steps of AA and NA, sobriety is within your reach!
