Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is a well-known fellowship, which began in 1935. Today, millions of individuals attend AA meetings on a regular basis. This is one of the ways in which past clients stay on-track in terms of their sobriety. However, many take part in AA meetings during their inpatient program as well.
At Weston Rehab, we offer a 12-step approach to those in need. Since Weston Rehab offers a Christian-based approach, the Alcoholics Anonymous is often well-received. This is due to the fact that the 12-steps to recovery are often focused on spirituality and God.
With that being said, we also offer a non-12 step approach to those who seek a different type of treatment (one that is better suited for their personal needs). Since Alcoholics Anonymous is well structured and highly-supportive, it’s an excellent treatment option for those who struggle with alcohol.
The Key Ideas Behind Alcoholics Anonymous
Whether you’re religious or not, AA is beneficial for all types of people. For some, it helps to restore their faith which has been significantly affected by their addiction. There are a few main ideas which reflect AA and the 12-steps involved in this self-help group:
- Acceptance: This concept is perhaps the most critical. Without acknowledging one’s addiction, it’s difficult to implement a successful treatment plan. Once our clients accept that their addiction is a progressive disease, AA can be a very uplifting and effective approach. It’s vital that you understand that willpower is not enough and that abstinence is the only true solution.
- Surrender: This means that individuals become more involved in a higher power, the fellowship, structure, and other recovering addicts they interact with. This is all about learning to follow a structured program, increasing your chances of a successful recovery.
- Active Involvement: You need to continuously put in the required effort, based on your personal needs. Some recovering addicts will continue to attend AA meetings for the rest of their lives. This is how touching and life-changing AA can be.
How Weston Rehab and AA Can Help You
Once you arrive at our facility, we will create a treatment plan that is right for you and your needs. Some benefit from AA right away, while others may not be introduced to AA until their aftercare. The point is, Weston Rehab creates a treatment plan that is best suited for your personal addiction and needs.
If you’re taking part in a 12-step program, there are many opportunities within our facility to strengthen your faith. We have pastoral counselors on-site, as well as bible studies, and a number of other great resources. If your faith is important to you, then Weston Rehab will help you strengthen your relationship with God during your recovery process.

We treat each client as a whole, focusing on all aspects of their health and well-being.
