While you may have heard of a 12-step program, you may be wondering what a 12-step immersion program is. A 12-step immersion program, sometimes called 12-step facilitation, is a comprehensive approach to treating addiction. It focuses on helping individuals identify the underlying behavioral and emotional issues that are driving their addiction and limiting progress toward identified goals. The 12-step program is based on the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) recovery model and has been adapted for various addictions. The 12-step program provides individuals with the opportunity to learn and understand how their addiction has affected their lives, as well as provides them with the tools to manage their recovery.

The Logic Behind 12-Step Immersion Programs
In its most traditional sense, the 12 steps of AA give participants the tools they need to lead sober lives. However, without proper training that teaches participants how to implement those tools into their lives, how can you expect someone to be successful at recovery?
One of our primary treatment philosophies at Makana Path and BRC Recovery Center is rooted in 12-step immersion and facilitation. This element of our treatment programs lay the groundwork for successful recovery by connecting our clients to resources that they can use even after completing treatment. Clients attend meetings daily, participate in parallel programming, and build fellowship to establish a strong foundation for a lasting recovery.
Healing, One Step at a Time
At BRC Healthcare, clients are guided through each of the 12 steps over time in a structured, supportive environment that lays the fundamental foundation for lasting recovery. Each client is assigned a recovery manager as part of their treatment team. These recovery managers are knowledgeable about the 12-step program and receive training in the facilitation of this model.
Daily meetings with staff help clients build relationships so they feel supported and not alone. Combined with a systematic, structured continuum of care that utilizes a holistic approach, 12-step immersion offers our clients a solid foundation as part of our commitment to maximizing the potential for success in their journey toward lifelong recovery from substance use disorders.
Many members of our staff have personally worked through the 12 steps. Their personal experience approach offers unique, first-hand perspectives that other treatment centers may not have.
The 12 steps of recovery are an important foundation to base treatment off of because:
- They provide a structure for healing, allowing individuals to move through the recovery process in a logical progression.
- They emphasize self-reflection and spiritual growth, which is essential to lasting sobriety.
- They help individuals build strong relationships with peers in recovery and their support network, which are vital tools in maintaining sobriety.
- The 12-step approach also encourages individuals to take responsibility for their own healing and makes them accountable for the choices they make regarding their substance abuse.
The 12-steps also help break the cycle of shame and guilt associated with addiction, allowing individuals to move forward in their recovery journey.
