12-step/AA/NA: The most traditional and widespread approach to treating alcoholism and addiction, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are a spiritual though not religious programs which emphasize relying on a self-defined Higher Power to help break the cycle of addiction. (There are over 30 different 12-step programs but AA/NA are the ones typically introduced in treatment.) The 12 steps involve admitting powerlessness over addiction, identifying a Higher Power, examining the past with the help of a sponsor, making amends, leading a new life with better behaviors and finally helping others through the same cycle.
