Types of 12-Step Programs in Orange County

When looking for a 12-step program in Orange County, it’s important that you determine what kind of treatment you need first. 

Inpatient 12-Step Programs: Inpatient programs specialize in medical detox, typically followed by 12-step-based residential treatment. These programs are best for people who aren’t sober yet and provide a safe, comfortable environment for withdrawal. This is a critical first step for many people, as withdrawal from some substances like opioids and alcohol can have fatal side effects if not treated in a clinical environment. Being in a monitored environment also prevents the risk of relapse which can be common in early recovery. 

Outpatient 12-Step Programs: Outpatient programs are a great next step after completing detox, offering supportive, consistent meetings where you can get treatment while still maintaining a normal schedule. These meetings can range in frequency from 5 days a week to 1-2 times a week depending on the program and needs of the individual.

What is the 12-step approach to addiction?

The 12-step approach to addiction is a structured peer support program that guides people through a series of steps designed to promote ongoing abstinence from drugs or alcohol, personal accountability, and spiritual growth. Just like recovery without 12 steps, this approach encourages participants to draw on the support of peers. Unlike many alternatives to 12 step programs, the methodology involves the acknowledgment of a higher power.
