The 12 Keys Model

The 12 Keys Model of Treatment is a multi-track, multi-disciplinary method of treating Addiction, Mental Health, Trauma and Social problems simultaneously. The recovery process at 12 Keys is administered by a large and qualified professional staff who have received extensive training in this model - in addition to all their training for licensure and certification.

Continuous assessment, monitoring and 1-1 counseling allow us to be very flexible formulating treatment plans. Every case is different and each requires gathering information from a multitude of sources, including self-disclosure, family, peers and observations by the treatment team and the support staff. Each source presents a point of view to be considered. The treatment planning is reviewed and approved by the Clinical Director and Medical Director prior to implementation. As the client progresses through the earlier stages of treatment new problems and revelations begin to present. Our team is there to review and prescribe additional treatments for each specific problem. We employ many modalities of treatment, including EMDR, Bio Feedback, Motivational Interviewing and 1-1 discussions with staff whose have training and experience dealing with the problem. Outcomes show that treating all the associated conditions combined with the 12 step model produces excellent results. Treating the client holistically means we help The Mind, The Spirit and The Body concurrently.

Our low client to therapist ratio is what affords us the time to identify and treat all the issue that drive the addiction. Treating the client with the Family involvement helps restore damaged relationships provides relief for the family and begins to erase the guilt and other negative emotions that accompany addiction.

Some of these modalities include EMDR, Bio Feedback, Motivational Interviewing, Seeking Safety Track and many others. We have a large treatment team and a small census. Daily 1-1 sessions with our client affords us the ability to closely monitor progress or problems. As problems arise Dr Balta and Loretta our Clinical Director formulate a plan of treatment. The clinical team meets and agrees on course of treatment and staff member best suited for implementation. The client then meets with his therapist and provides his or hers input.

12 Steps are designed to produce a spiritual awakening. The 12 Steps of recovery have been around and succeeding since 1935. The 12 steps are also called "a design for living". The process is very simple and is proven to be the most successful method for alcoholics and addicts to recover.

The beauty of this model is it is offers support to anyone suffering the disease of addiction a world wide support network. When we plug in to this way of life we begin to look at ourselves and how we interact with others. We learn that we have often been wrong. Perhaps more importantly we come to the realization we are unable to stop our destructive behavior without help. We learn that we are not alone, that others think the way we do, that others have found a solution to their problem, that with a little work we can live a life free from addiction and selfishness. We learn to repair the damages we have caused others in our active addiction. We begin to get relief from the overwhelming guilt and despair we suffer as a result of the life we lived in addiction.
