The Change You Desire May Be Only a Thought Exchange Away!!!
With regard to alcohol, other drugs, including nicotine as well as other thought-based “bad habits,” gambling, eating, shopping, etc, The Thought Exchange offers a variety of options to the 12-step disease model. In fact, we specialize in working with individuals who do not find the 12-step model helpful. You are not alone. Most people do not find the 12-step model helpful for practical reasons and we are here to help you understand why.
For example, labels such as "alcoholic" and "addict" are categorical in nature, focusing on the negative while discounting the fact that human beings are multifaceted. The scientific terms "abuse" and "dependence" identify the different degrees of the problematic behavior while encouraging the individual to recognize the positive aspects of his or her life. Personal responsibility and self-reliance are encouraged. Enhancing your ability to think and reason is the ticket to lasting change.
