12-STEP AND ADDICTION RECOVERY GROUPS
At All Points North Lodge, we offer on-campus addiction recovery groups. Though we are not a 12-step program, we absolutely see the benefit of 12-step recovery for those suffering from substance abuse or other addictions. We may even suggest a 12-step recovery group for a client being treated for mental health or trauma. There are several different kinds of addiction recovery meetings offered in the Vail Valley that we may recommend. In many instances, we find supplementing clinical recovery with a 12-step program of some kind to be extremely beneficial. We introduce our clients to many varieties of programs – not merely Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
Some other programs we may encourage clients to attend include:
- SLAA – Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous
- ACA – Adult Children of Alcoholics
- Al-Anon – For the friends and family members of addicted individuals
- SMART Recovery
Many of our staff members have personal experience with 12-step programs and are available to act as mentors to our clients, helping them better navigate the 12-step method of recovery. 12-step clients will be encouraged to socialize with their sponsors and sober supports to assist them in developing strong positive ties to a healthy community.
