What we do
12 STEPS PROGRAM
This is a program to assist people affected alcohol and/or drugs in order for them to either reduce or and abstain from their alcohol and drug use. The program is primarily designed to be used i rural and deprived areas for people who are oral learners and have low literacy skills. However the course can be used in other wider environments where funding is limited. The program has 12 lessons which are called pycho-education lessons. Each lessons lasts for 1 and 1/2 hours. This means that we have drawn various psychological resources that consider the background for alcohol and drug abuse and bringing them together as an educational tool. The second approach s called "cognitive behavioral coping skills". problem with alcohol and drugs is both a problem of thinking, e.g., "I cannot live without drinking," and problem of behavior, e.g., getting drug, losing salary money, fighting with spouse, etc. The third approach is "relapse prevention skills." Alcoholism or drug addition is often difficult to just stop to those affected may have periods where they go back to drinking or drugging. But with the proper understanding that addiction is a brain disease and with support they can return to either reducing their drinking/drugging or quitting together. The last approach is called Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Facilitation. Through this approach they learn about using AA or NA groups for supporting their desire for healthy living.
