The WAVE is not 12-Step.
We do not use labels or tell stories about abusing drugs or alcohol.
We do not see you as having anything wrong with you. You are empowered (not powerless) and have everything you need right inside you (not dependent on a higher power or other people).
We see you as human: unique and individual. Finally, you will understand how humans (you) operate.  You will finally get information about thinking mind (the source of our discomfort) and avoidance behaviors (drinking and using). The light will go on (with mindfulness). A sense of relief and new self-understanding and compassion will replace shame or blame. It is not that we must change who we are and recover to any ‘normal’ state-it is that we have to KNOW ourselves and give ourselves what we have been seeking outside ourselves.

For probably the fist time you will understand cause and effect: why you do what you do. And you will learn what it means to be an adult: taking accountability for what does not benefit you under your own skin. Instead of leaning on someone else or a group for support you will have the insight and skills to assist yourself!

Instead of declaring “I am an alcoholic” you will hear yourself say “I am HAPPY.” And here’s the thing: there is no end to happiness. Once you know how you operate in the world and give yourself what you have always been seeking you will have self-esteem, or happiness. Using life skills you will empower yourself. You are not a label. You are not static. You are a living, always moving organism capable of making adjustments to yourself in every single moment.
