The cycle of addiction is rooted in an unbearable suffering that begins due to various circumstances. 12-step and non-12-step philosophies have the same goal; That goal is to relieve the individual from their suffering, to find a higher power to guide them through their suffering, to transform one’s attitudes and behaviors, and to continue the knowledge they currently have by giving it to others. Many individuals suffering from addiction find that there are unwholesome aspects of their personality that do not serve themselves or others. At Good Heart, we help people unlearn the unhealthy and unbeneficial thoughts, behaviors, and actions they used to identify with and bring them to a place of solitude with greater self-esteem, greater respect for others, and the ability to forgive themselves and all prior circumstances. When this is achieved, miracles can happen.
