Break Free: Your Journey to Sobriety Starts with the 12-Step Program of Recovery
Holistic 12-Step Rehab Program
Holistic 12-Step Rehab Centre in South Africa
At PRC Recovery Centre, we understand that addiction is a disease that affects the whole person physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our 12-Step Recovery Program is designed to treat the whole person, creating a support network that provides comfort, healing and encouragement along the way. Our addiction treatment specialists use a customized approach to help our clients overcome their addictions and recover in a safe and nurturing environment.
The basic premise of this model is that people can help one another achieve and maintain abstinence from substance abuse. It allows for mental and emotional transformative practices and tools.
Why we prefer the Narcotics Anonymous 12 Step Program?
Narcotics Anonymous Step Work is extremely comprehensive with nearly 400 self-reflecting questions being worked through.
NA also doesn’t distinguish between different addictions and therefore are used for any substances abused and behaviours.
The most important aspect of this Twelve Step Program is that it specifically looks at it from a disease perspective, not that it is a moral failing.
There is no discrimination of ethnic or religious backgrounds.
For long-term sobriety, there are hundreds of meetings countrywide which form part of the individual's support system in recovery.

What are the 12 Steps:
Step One – We realize that we cannot control our addiction, or the disastrous effects it has on our lives (health, finances, relationships, careers/education). Accepting that our efforts to abstain from using/drinking by ourselves alone have failed, becoming aware of the obsessive and compulsive nature of the disease. The operative spiritual principle behind Step 1 is honesty, defined as the absence of the intention to deceive, not only others but fundamentally ourselves.
Step Two – We come to accept that there is a greater power outside ourselves that can restore us to wholeness, and we decide who, or what that power is: God, Spirit, etc., that becomes our source of strength. We acknowledge that a spiritual awakening can help us to find a new way of life, as we deal with our self-righteousness and habitual behaviour. Step 2 offers hope of a life free from drugs/alcohol.
Step Three – We decide to turn our will and our lives (thoughts, feelings, defiant and habitual behaviour) over to the guidance of God, or the Higher Power of our understanding. We are ready to follow and stay true to the new path we have chosen. Acceptance allows evasion and denial to give way to reality and peace of mind. We attain the power to welcome new people and ideas into our lives. Faith makes us willing to do the right thing, by employing the recovery skills we are learning, and not engaging in behaviours, previously dictated by negative thoughts and emotions.
Step Four – We take a moral inventory of our lives, by delving into the underlying layers of the psyche to discover unhealthy thoughts, and behavioural patterns that must be broken, to enjoy true healing and restoration. We have the strength and courage to look within and face whatever obstacles hinder continued personal and spiritual development. It gives us the courage to honestly look at how our judgment, has become warped to justify our continued behaviour. Honesty is the ability to match up our insides with our outsides, meaning that thoughts, feelings and behaviour are in harmony.
Step Five – We commit to becoming fully aware of how our use of drugs/alcohol hurts those around us. Introspection and reflection shed light on the hidden darkness we carry, but in admitting the exact nature of our wrongs, the sense of isolation diminishes, and we receive forgiveness and also give it. We practice integrity by owning up to our past behaviours, and through humility, we gain emotional honesty and acceptance of reality.
Step Six – We actively work to identify our limitations, to improve our mental, spiritual and emotional well-being. We become willing to make the necessary changes in our lives and develop our human potential. Another key component is the comprehension of the difference between striving for an objective, as opposed to unattainable perfection.
Step Seven – Humility enables us to move further into action, in the previous step we became willing to let go of our old behaviours, and in Step 7 we ask for help in actively letting go. We become proud of our strength and ability to grow. True faith is the result of surrender coupled with experience, the belief that our limitations can be “removed”.
Step Eight – Through discipline and action, we continue to remove the barriers that can inhibit sober living and spiritual growth. We make a list of people we have harmed, which includes ourselves, both through actions and not being present to live up to obligations. By realizing the mistakes we have made, we can make amends and restore relationships through our words and actions.
Step Nine – We face our fears and do all we can to make amends, except when to do so, would do us, or the other person more harm than good. Patience is taking time for things to move into place without force or breakage. Asking forgiveness of those we have intentionally, or unintentionally injured, and trying to correct those injuries through our actions, and not mere words.
Step Ten – A daily inventory based on our thoughts, feelings and behaviour, cultivates the self-awareness to admit our mistakes, as we become aware of them. It offers acceptance for both the good and the challenges present in our lives. Humility teaches us that we simply need to be better than the person we were yesterday on this journey of recovery.
Step Eleven – The conscious effort to do the right thing, being at peace with the knowledge, and awareness of our purpose in life, whilst actively pursuing it. Through prayer and meditation, we gain the strength and courage to realize our full potential. It also brings about emotional regulation and ensures that we remain connected to the god of our understanding, life and people around us.
Step Twelve –Steps 1 – 11 have brought about a paradigm shift and enlightened state of consciousness, acceptance and awareness. Service and gratitude empower us to demonstrate the new principles by which we live, not only to remain in recovery but through the example of our conduct and actions in our daily lives. We continue to develop our potential and spirituality, seek out, and are available to help others in need, or suffering from addiction. Sharing and caring are the active and passive forms of love that keep us alive, allowing a higher power to use us as instruments.
