Welcome to Prominence Treatment Center. If you have not found success with the 12-step rehab model of recovery you are not alone. For 70 years the only treatments available were based on Alcoholics Anonymous’ 12-Step and 12 traditions. Alcoholics Anonymous has helped many people, however, the relapse rate is staggeringly high.

Prominence Treatment Center’s Non 12-Step program is designed to provide the highest quality and personalized care available in the addiction industry today.

What is a Non 12-Step Rehab Program?

Our Non 12-Step Rehab Program for addiction treatment uses cutting edge, self-empowering cognitive behavioral approach, proven to work with addiction.  We combine science based treatment modalities with holistic health services. Our treatment staff has been working in the addiction and recovery industry for more than three decades.

Prominence Treatment Center’s Non 12-Step rehab for addiction treatment is committed to the philosophy of uncovering the “root cause” that is driving your addiction. You no longer have to feel hopeless, depressed, and anxious. With just one decision, you will realize that you can accomplish your dreams and your goals that were once forgotten.

A vital factor in any addiction program is aftercare, which is necessary for long-term sobriety.   Prominence Treatment Center doesn’t merely discharge our clients and send them on their way. We leave them with a plan. The plan may include IOP, specific therapies and your choice of Smart Recovery or other support groups. Our hand tailored aftercare plans, if followed, will keep you sober for the rest of your life.

If you like how this sounds, remember that it only takes one call to turn these dreams into a reality.

Group Therapy

At Prominence Treatment Center, our group therapy sessions provide a safe environment for people to learn, listen and share their thoughts. Each group therapy session is lead by a licensed therapist and focused on a certain topic. Some topics are educational and complex, like Behaviorism and Addiction, while other topics such as Dream Boards are enriching and entertaining. Specific group topics offered at Prominence include:

Neuroscience and Substance Use

Group Description:  The neuroscience group is a psycho-educational and interactive group that explains how the brain develops. The group educates individuals on how the brain develops new synaptic connections, which can make individuals less susceptible to outside influences. The Neuroscience and Substance Use group also discusses how the brain can adapt to new behaviors and cognitions, making real life changes by altering the way that the brain is physically wired.

Clinical Objective:  Utilizing evidenced based research in neuroscience (Carlson, 2004; Kolb, & Whishaw, 1996) clients learn how the brain reacts to incidents in their life and the long-term ramifications of substance use. Clients will understand how the brain can change the way a person perceives events and adapts poor habits that have been developed over years and into more productive behaviors and thought processes.

The Interactive Model of Behavior 

Group Description: The group utilizes a model of behavior that goes beyond the normally accepted models of behavioral change and incorporates additional factors that affects the psychological well-being of the client and his or her family. Most models of behavior include an interaction between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. This group expands that model to include the environment in which a person lives and the routines that often reinforce and maintain maladaptive behaviors. This group utilizes a psycho-educational and interactive format so that the client can benefit from the group topic while still in the group and continuing throughout treatment.

Clinical Objectives: This group challenges the common assertion that the only person we can change is our self. Clients learn that behavior is maintained by their everyday environment (e.g. home, work) and can dictate the routines that are developed. Once a client adapts their behavior, it can influence the behavior of others within the environments. The overall health of each environment can be changed by a behavioral adjustment from the addict.

Emotional Development 

Group Description: This group is psycho-educational and explains the differences between physical, intellectual, and emotional development.  This interactive group utilizes evidence-based theories to teach and discuss how emotional development can be preserved and developed at nearly any stage of development.

Clinical Objectives: Clients learn that emotional development occurs in stages and that unlike intellectual and emotional development, emotional development can be slowed or even halted. Clients will learn that emotional development builds on previous stages. Individuals can’t skip stages and must master the skills in a particular stage before progressing. Visualize this process with basic math. You have to learn addition and subtraction before moving on to more complex math lessons like multiplication and division. The emotional development group, in conjunction with other groups, assists the client to understand more adaptive behaviors and methods to increase emotional development.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

Group Description: Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) helps individuals suffering from addictions make long lasting and life altering changes. The group discusses the evolution of psychotherapy starting with Freud and continuing to other theories like behaviorism (Skinner & Watson) and Cognitive-Behavioral Theory (Ellis & Meichenbaum). The CBT group combines real life and textbook examples of behaviors, how they are maintained, reinforced, and extinguished. Clients learn that behavior is learned and over time, can be corrected.

Group Objectives: The Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy group helps clients understand the reasons behind their behavior and what they can do to change it. Clients learn how to utilize the steps that Albert Ellis and other theorists devised to change destructive behaviors and thought processes.

Clients are taught in CBT that substance abuse and dependency is a learned behavior and that psychotherapy can affect long-term changes in behavior. CBT identifies problem behavior patterns, reinforced by faulty cognitions, and replaces them with more adaptive behaviors. This gives clients a greater chance at living a substance free life.

Prominence Treatment Center treats addiction through a combination of our 10 Non 12- Step Rehab programs.
