Do we support AA?

Absolutely! We have no association or affiliation with AA or other similar support groups, but our ultimate goal is simply to help as many individuals as possible become sober and maintain sobriety. We want program participants to be emancipated from the misery of their addiction and be able to realize and fully manifest their potential. We want to assist in giving them back their life. AA is a firmly established and successful organization that we support. It teaches a manner of living that can benefit anybody and establishes a mechanism that the alcoholic can support and help others with a similar struggle. It serves as a safe place to be constantly reminded of the risk of relapse, and provides additional tools and support to maintain long term sobriety. The benefit of fellowship and camaraderie of a group support in recovery cannot be overstated. We do not consider our program in conflict with AA. In fact, we believe that our program will assist AA, or any support group or recovery program in achieving lasting success with a higher percentage of their participants. We recognize that many people in the throes of addiction are incapable of concentrating and absorbing the teaching of counselors, therapists, and group meetings. And no matter how hard they try, some individuals are unsuccessful in the “white knuckle” approach. In addition, every person and every recovery journey is different and many individuals simply don’t thrive in the group setting. By eliminating the intrusive and overwhelming craving to drink, we find that program participants are better able to ingest, digest, and apply the teachings from their counselors, therapists, AA, alternative 12-step program, SMART recovery, or wherever they feel most comfortable so as to maintain long term sobriety.
