The Homa Therapy in-residence drug/alcohol de-addiction program.

The Anonymous Programs

The Anonymous Programs based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous have helped hundreds of thousands of alcoholics to rehabilitate their lives and therefore to live sober.

The Homa Therapy In-residence Drug/Alcohol Deaddiction Program provides a Mind Training Program to enable the recovering addict/alcoholic to practice the Twelve Steps of AA.

We use the AA Big Book as a text because it contains valuable information written by recovering alcoholics. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are studied, discussed and put into practice in a group setting. The purpose is to aid the drug addict/alcoholic in learning how to live sober one day at a time.

Utilizing the H.O.W. of the AA Program -- honesty, open-mindedness and willingness -- we begin our self-study. We learn that our actions cause reactions. We begin to take responsibility for our actions past and present.

Writing is an example of a tool used in AA to help the addict practice the Twelve Steps. Various writing exercises will be given as part of this study. We begin with writing our personal history as it relates to our addictive behavior. We then examine in writing the things that disturb us and cause resentment. We also write out those things in our lives that we find unmanageable. We keep a daily journal of our progress.

Writing takes some of the burden off the mind by clearly defining some of the factors that are the cause of our stress and negativity. We are then able to apply solutions.
