The Farley Center's 12-Step Recovery Program focuses on the original Twelve Steps. The original Twelve Steps was developed by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith: the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous. The Twelve-step programs work through group meetings in which members share their experiences in recovery. The program emphasizes the common welfare of the group.
Most groups distinguish between those meetings that are open to everyone and those that are limited to those suffering from the addiction that is the focus of the group. For example, someone with drug addiction would not attend a meeting devoted to alcoholism unless they were also addicted to alcohol.

Farley Center at Williamsburg Place has a rich history of treating high-functioning professionals. We are recognized as one of the pioneering treatment facilities in the country, helping licensed individuals with sophisticated defense mechanisms learn how to cope with life stressors without misusing alcohol or other addictive substances.
The goal of the Farley Center Intensive Outpatient Programs is to reduce our patient’s symptoms and to improve their overall health and functioning in social, occupational, educational, and other areas critical to leading a safe, independent, and productive life. To provide safe treatment, we have been implementing new policies and procedures and practicing social distancing. We have transitioned our groups to telehealth, which utilizes a virtual platform for treatment.
The Farley Center believes that your treatment is just the beginning of your recovery. Our hope is to help provide the foundation you need through group work, relapse prevention education, and 12-step integration to start your life of recovery. We believe that relapse is a process and hope that while you’re with us you learn that this process begins before your first use. Our goal is to help you get a better understanding of signs, symptoms and triggers for relapse.
