12-Step recovery model
As part of your recovery, you will be required to work through the “12-Steps”. This involves coming to terms with the reality of alcoholism and addiction, breaking through denial, learning to rely on other more healthy and positive approaches instead of one’s own often self destructive thinking and behavior and eventually embracing a lifestyle and attitude steeped in positivity.
STEPS aims to help you achieve abstinence; that’s our goal. For example, an alcoholic doesn’t become a social drinker and an addict doesn’t become a ‘recreational’ user. The reason we advocate abstinence from alcohol and other drugs is that there is a strong tendency for people to swap addictions and to relapse after abstaining for a period of time.
It has been seen that people with substance abuse issues generally have poor life skills. The World Health Organization has listed 10 core life skills that can fit into three broad categories: Thinking Skills; Social Skills and Negotiation Skills. Through re-educative sessions you will learn how a poor utilization of these has impacted your life and accordingly learn to use and incorporate life skills for a better life.
STEPS has been involved in alcohol and drug abuse prevention and treatment since its inception in 2015. Although STEPS had been mooted since 2015, it was only in April 2017 that a group of like minded individuals formally decided to form a voluntary not for profit organization that would initially start off by assisting and working with communities in rebuilding lives affected by alcohol / substance abuse and HIV / AIDS.
Today we are a 30 bedded drug and alcohol treatment cum rehabilitation Centre that provides in-patient (residential) detoxification and treatment for those with alcohol and/or substance abuse issues.
STEPS follows the 12-step recovery model of Narcotics Anonymous and Alcohol Anonymous and undertake In-house Care Center with Rehabilitation Services, Therapeutic Counseling, Alternate Therapies and Psychiatric Intervention for Transforming Lives & Building Independence. Psychiatric Intervention are being taken up under the guidance of Dr. Surjeet Sahoo.
