ACT Addiction Recovery Plan
ACT Recovery Programs
ACT addiction therapy programs provide a flexible process of change, comprising many elements and factors. Your ACT program helps you walk out of ACTive Addiction towards ACTive Recovery, best defined as “living the choice of rich and meaningful life you aspire to”.
ACT recovery programs are tailored to your specific addiction/behaviour. Rooted in the science, ACT – Acceptance Commitment Therapy, forms the foundation for all the important areas of your life – Health, Family, Work, Society. Addiction gives way to Values, Actions and therefore consequences that most benefit who and what really matters to you.
ACT Recovery Programs start with you, work for you and by design, move you out of addiction and into your chosen valued life. You can start your program right now. Here are the core steps.
