12-Step Support in Oklahoma

People throughout the world have heard of the 12-Step Recovery Model, even if they have never needed it in their own lives. The 12 Steps are based on basic values, including the power of community. Going from addiction to recovery has its challenges; however, 12-Step meetings like those offered through Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can help you get the support you need.

When you complete professional treatment, you will be provided with an aftercare plan that will help you maintain your progress. This plan will likely include a recommendation to go to regular 12-Step meetings like AA or NA within your community.

12-Step meetings give you the opportunity to share your experiences with substance abuse with others. In turn, other participants will share their experiences, which gives everyone the opportunity to develop healthy coping skills and receive support.

If you are living in Oklahoma, there are several different options for 12-Step support in your community. Some meetings might be geared towards a specific gender or age, however there are enough meetings available that you can find one that is a good fit for you.

For Loved Ones

Watching someone you love struggle with an addiction to alcohol and/or drugs can be heartbreaking. You might feel alone, overwhelmed, and as if there is nothing that you can do. It’s important to know that you do not have to go through this alone.

Similar to the options available to your loved one, there are also support groups available for you within your community. 12-Step programming such as Alateen and Al-anon can allow you to talk about your experiences while listening to the experiences of others. Through this process, you can start to develop coping skills that will encourage your overall health and wellbeing.

Making the Most of Meetings

Once you have found the meetings that are best for your needs, it can be important to participate in them as much as possible so you can get the most benefit. People living in the Oklahoma area have benefitted from 12-Step programming. When you are ready, you can offer the same support to others in need.

I am very proud to say I received help at Rolling Hills, if you are struggling with your mental health it is a great place to recharge your batteries and get a better understanding of your body and mind.
