12-Step Meetings at The Raleigh House

12-Step Meetings at The Raleigh House

While the 12-step program has been the primary addiction recovery strategy since the mid-20th century, today it is only one of numerous effective methodologies for long-term substance use management. At The Raleigh House, we offer Eastern philosophy-focused treatment while providing space for standard 12-step meetings. We specialize in treatments that incorporate mindful meditation, animal-assisted therapy, yoga, and a variety of alternative therapies into Western rehabilitation protocols. Our focus on crafting individual treatment plans for our guests offers a holistic approach that facilitates full-body wellness.

What Are 12-Step Programs?

The 12-step program was created in 1935 as a faith-based series of principles based upon those first advocated by an organization called the Oxford Group. This approach differed from previous, non-science-driven addiction recovery techniques that relied upon willpower and human perfectibility. The 12-steps, on the other hand, acknowledged that addiction is a chronic condition that requires focused, life-long management and support.

The 12 steps of recovery, while different depending upon the type of substance dependency, typically include:

  1. Recognizing that you are not in control of your substance dependency.
  2. Acknowledging the existence of a Higher Power.
  3. Seeking strength and resolve from that Higher Power.
  4. Admitting to the transgressions you committed while under the influence of a substance.
  5. Confessing, in full, your transgressions to the Higher Power and another person.
  6. Submitting to the correction of your character deficiencies by the Higher Power.
  7. Requesting correction of your character deficiencies by the Higher Power through prayer or meditation.
  8. Committing your list of transgressions to paper with a willingness to rectify all wrongs.
  9. Making amends with those you have wronged except those who would be harmed by your attempt.
  10. Recognizing subsequent transgressions and taking full responsibility for your actions.
  11. Praying, meditating, or otherwise seeking guidance and forgiveness from the Higher Power.
  12. Acting as an ambassador of the 12 steps for others with substance dependencies by providing continual support and guidance.

Types of 12-Step Programs

Numerous recovery programs employ the 12-step model. These include groups for families and children of people with substance use disorders, groups for people with behavioral addictions, groups for friends of people with addictive disorders, and support groups for trauma survivors.

The Raleigh House provides a safe space for people struggling with addiction who wish to participate in 12-step meetings. Our program is not based on the 12-step model, but we do offer nightly 12-step meetings and/or Dharma meetings to introduce them to clients and offer them resources for continuing support once they leave treatment.

Dharma Recovery

Dharma recovery offers a peer-led, alternative approach to addiction management that can be used as a standalone treatment, though it is often practiced as a supplement to 12-step programs. Dharma recovery embraces a spiritual path to rehabilitation, though a belief in a Higher Power is not required.

The Dharma recovery program integrates Buddhist teachings into a community-based recovery model. The foundational principles of Dharma recovery are self-inquiry, compassion, wisdom, trust, and community support. The sessions begin with mindful meditation and then progress to shared readings and discussions. Participants are encouraged to share observations and experiences with the group. The structure and format of the meetings vary depending upon the facilitator.
