Options for a Recovery Support Group in Texas at Vertava Health
We offer several 12-step support groups at Vertava Health Texas. These groups have a facilitator but are structured as peer-to-peer rather than client-to-therapist. The basic premise of a 12-step group is that the individual is powerless over their addiction. Because of this, they must turn to a power greater than themselves. The 12 steps of recovery take people through the process of healing with the help of this higher power. The steps require a person to examine themselves, admit their wrongs, and make amends with others.
Participants in a recovery support group in Texas support each other through openness and discussion of their experiences with addiction. They share a common goal of abstinence from drugs, alcohol, and any mind-altering substance.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)
Alcoholics Anonymous provides a safe space for people addicted to alcohol or in recovery after alcohol use treatment to come together. It views addiction as a disease, not as a moral failing. Though AA promotes the spiritual concept of turning to a higher power, it is not based on religion. Individuals can find this higher power within themselves, the group, or whatever “God” means to them.
Narcotics Anonymous (NA)
Narcotics Anonymous is a support group for individuals who suffer from drug addiction. All are welcome who desire to stop using drugs of any kind. This group is similar to AA but is directed at people who use drugs, such as heroin or prescription opioids rather than alcohol.
Cocaine Anonymous (CA)
Cocaine Anonymous also shares the basic premise of AA but is specifically for people who use cocaine. Drugs have different effects on a person’s mind and body, as well as varying health consequences. This specialized 12-step group allows the discussion to be relevant to everyone whose life has been affected by cocaine addiction.
Celebrate Recovery is a Christian 12-step support group that focuses on building a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is “a place for the broken to come and face the pain in their lives.” Members of this group accept Jesus as their higher power and believe that he has a plan for their lives.
Alternative Recovery Support Groups At Vertava Health Texas
While many people benefit from traditional 12-step groups, they are not for everyone. At Vertava Health Texas, we offer alternative recovery support groups that promote self-empowerment.
Self-Management And Recovery Training
Also known as SMART, this program helps individuals find the power within themselves to change their lives. It uses scientifically proven methods. SMART Recovery encourages individuals to learn from their past and pinpoint the causes of drug or alcohol use.
The four-point program of SMART Recovery addresses:
- Becoming and remaining motivated to change
- Coping with cravings and temptations to engage in substance use
- Dealing with thoughts, emotions, and behavior in a positive way without drugs or alcohol
- Developing a balanced, positive, and healthy lifestyle
Refuge Recovery groups are based on Buddhist principles. These groups support the idea that the individual has the power to overcome addiction and the suffering it causes. By following the teachings of the Buddha, group members support each other on the path of awakening that leads to recovery.
