Top rated evidence based non 12 step treatment facility.
Malibu, CA (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
Dr. Akikur Mohammad, Founder of Inspire Malibu, recognized by many as the top non 12 step drug rehab in the country and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences at the University of Southern California (http://www.USC.edu), announced today that the overwhelming surge in popularity of Inspire Malibu is due to his team’s focus on treating the disease of addiction with evidence-based protocol, a pure respect for the science of addiction and a truly individualized, holistic approach to addressing the critical therapeutic needs of their clients.
Dr. Mohammad said, “There is absolutely no denying that addiction is a chronic medical illness that must be treated with proper medical treatment like Diabetes, high blood pressure or any other complex medical issue; therefore, I’m sure that all logical people would agree that simply attending meetings will never be the sole solution to treating addiction. You don’t treat Diabetes with self-help meetings, it is treated with uniform, evidence-based medical treatment – this is exactly why non 12 step recovery programs are so effective.” Mohammad added, “While there is a very real place for the 12 step model in recovery, it is a self-help model, not a critical piece of the treatment blueprint and if it weren’t for many years of deceptive marketing, there would be many more treatment centers willing to be honest with patients and families about the fact that non 12 step treatment is often the best option for patients struggling with chemical dependency. Our patients respond to the way we empower them with knowledge, not the message of powerlessness they hear in AA, the difference is profound”
While many facilities claim to be evidence-based, Dr. Mohammad is widely recognized as the pioneer of non 12 step recovery and warns the public to be cautious when selecting a facility. Mohammad added, “Addiction is a matter of life and death, and must be treated as such. Make absolutely sure that the facility you choose for treatment has a team that is highly regarded in the field and been successfully treating addiction for a significant amount of time. Beware of fancy marketing and focus on the reputation of the recovery team. Inspire Malibu’s team is widely recognized as the best in the addiction field and we are available to answer any questions you might have about our program; accessibility is critical.”
