12-Step Program

Introducing and Acquainting Individuals to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA)

12 StepMany people in drug rehab may have heard of twelve-step peer support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Yet they may be anxious or reluctant to attend their first and second AA or NA meetings, even though it is well documented that involvement in these groups increases a person's success in maintaining abstinence from alcohol and drugs.

Individuals in Gateway's drug rehab programs are encouraged to attend twelve-step meetings while in treatment, and given referrals to meetings and resources as part of the discharge process.

  • Actively supports initial involvement in AA/NA.
