12Care Program Components

Mentoring, monitoring and 12 months of family support

12Care recovery mentoring program

The majority of people who complete treatment relapse within one year. But over 90% of licensed professionals, like lawyers, doctors and airline pilots, are still clean and sober after one year. What makes the difference?


Licensed professionals are mandated into mentoring and monitoring programs by their licensing agencies. They are personally guided through every phase of the recovery process and they are continually monitored to discourage relapse.


12CARE improves on these programs and makes them available to non-licensed individuals and their families. We have recruited and trained a select team of Recovery Mentors, family counselors and therapists to provide personal support and guidance. Our hands-on approach provides help for both the family and the newly recovery individual, even before they return home from treatment.
