Plans Consisting Of 12 Steps

The Secret Of 12 Steps To Success

The 12 steps and traditions, known as the Alcoholics Anonymous, is one of the earliest programs designed to help people through recovery and is regarded by many as the yardstick for assessing any program that claims to help people break free from reliance on any substance or alcohol.


Putting history to the 12 steps - it was established by the Alcoholics Anonymous as a structured guideline to recovering from alcohol addiction. It gained its popularity from its early successful implementation in beating alcohol abuse that the drug rehab treatment adapted its own version of the 12-step program. Many nonbelievers have relied on the 12 Steps describing it very supportive despite the fact that it is strongly spiritual. Room was made for a variety of explanations of the concept according to how people can explain the idea of a God.


Similar 12 step-programs are presently being used with a great deal of success to treat addictions and retrogressive behaviours, from Cocaine Anonymous to Debtors Anonymous.


The Effectivity Of The Model

Due to the anonymous nature installed by the AA, and lack of provided information, it is difficult to know how effective the 12-step guide actually is. Experiences of former addicts who broke their addiction using the principles contained in the traditions is a proof that it works.

Those who display sincerity in their attempt to break their reliance on alcohol and drugs receive the needed assistance from the 12-step plan. The regularly scheduled gatherings and the sponsorship system show its impact on people who had successfully beaten the problem.


Alcoholics Anonymous And The 12 Steps

The group recognizes that recovery does not end with rehab hence it is all up to the recovering patient to adapt the best plan that works for his recovery. Some of the steps discussed in the program are repeated severally by those using the program.

The 12 Steps detailed by Alcoholic Anonymous are the following:

  • We accepted we were weak over the use of alcohol - that it had become an important, unmanageable part of our lives.
  • We seek the help of a support system with the power greater than us to help us recover.
  • Giving ourselves to God according to our understanding is what we have agreed to do so that he will help us.
  • Find ourselves and examine our moral strengths.
  • Disclosing to God, self, family, friends your inability to overcome addiction paves the way to recovery.
  • Be willing to let go hold on your life control to God.
  • Asked Him to eradicate our inadequacies.
  • Prepared a list of all those people we have hurt and willing to compensate them all.
  • Made direct compensations to these people every time is possible excluding those times that it can cause troubles.
  • Admit to being wrong when we are so and continue to make inventories of ourselves.
  • Seek consolation from God through prayer and quiet time to understand and increase your knowledge of God's love help you to get a new sense of direction and perspective in future life.
  • Having been the centre of a "spiritual awakening" we will carry on the message to alcoholics and continue to practice what we speak.

  • Each group/chapter abstains from activities that deviate from our single purpose and should never get involved with any financial or enterprising endeavours.
  • AA groups are self-supported and should not solicit outside financial assistance.
  • While our activities may require having specialized professionals in our employment, the group itself does not lean towards professionals.
  • There may be committees or boards that will handle the affairs of members of their group while the group itself will not come together.
  • AA does not engage on matters outside the group's primary concerns and do not take part in public debate.
  • We base our relations policy on attraction over promotion, we should always keep our anonymity from the TV, radio, film and press.
