Residential 12-Step Programs

12-step programs use the principals of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as the “umbrella” for their treatment model. Clients work through the 12-steps in psychoeducational and process groups. Several different types of 12-step programs exist, with varying levels of structure and support, from more restrictive settings, which are locked or in remote locations, all the way to traditional boarding schools with a 12-step component for those who need it.

Length of stay is typically one to two years.
