Sprout Health Arizona highly recommends attending a support group outside of our facility when your treatment is complete. It is not mandatory but it is important to remain in contact with people who have the knowledge and experience of life in and outside of treatment.
Established in 1953, Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a 12-step program that helps recovering patients maintain their sobriety outside of treatment facilities. NA requires each patient to understand that they are powerless to their addiction and that it takes a lot of willpower, work and support to remain committed to their sobriety.
NA members are strongly encouraged to share their experiences among the group. This allows other members to gain insight, advice and tips on how to maintain their sobriety. NA is not a counseling group and does not provide any sort of treatment but it does provide a large support group for those who are willing to continually work towards a sober and healthy life.
NA is not only useful for peer support but it is also a great program to teach each member how to become a mentor for others who are going through similar experiences. The 12-step program is designed to help members gain self-esteem and confidence. Sprout Health Group Arizona believes that the program helps patients develop the skills necessary to be a good leader, sponsor, facilitator and all-around better person. Members of NA strive to help others become better than they previously were. NA has millions of members who are living healthy and sober lives and want to help other recovering patients.
Sprout Health Arizona does not offer NA meetings in its facility; however, we do recommend our patients attending these meetings and will help guide them to the closest group available. What we do offer are highly individualized treatment programs that will lead our patients to a successful recovery. We believe that the road to recovery does not end once our treatments are completed and we will make sure that our patients are continually led in the right direction.
