Social Model Recovery Systems - Bimini Philosophy
The Bimini House is a residential treatment center for chemically dependent men and women struggling with addiction. Specializing in the treatment of veteran and active members of the armed forces, Bimini House provides comprehensive, compassionate care designed to suit the needs of those who have served our country. Treatment services include individualized case management, grief counseling, anger management, vocational assistance, housing assistance, family reunification, medical and dental care, social functions, room and board, 12-Step meetings, and more.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
