Plans Consisting Of 12 Steps

The Secret Of 12 Steps To Success

This has become the standard program for recovery for almost all types of addiction.


Those who came up with the idea of Alcoholics Anonymous established these 12-step instructions to guide people who want to break their reliance on alcohol. 12 Step program traces its roots to Alcoholics Anonymous but is today popularly used by support groups for all kinds of addictions. Many people who have no affiliation to any religious group also adopt the program despite the spiritual undertone of the program. Room was made for a variety of explanations of the concept according to how people can explain the idea of a God.


The 12 Step approaches are applied to numerous dependence and obsessive conducts going from Cocaine Anonymous to Debtors Anonymous.


Is The Concept Functional

The privacy of Alcoholics Anonymous membership and inadequate research results make it difficult to document the gains and success of AA 12 Step model program. 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. Most participants go over these steps in the process of treatment to refresh memory and to achieve maximum impact of the success of this program.

The 12 Steps detailed by Alcoholic Anonymous are the following:

  • We acknowledge our problem and that we are unable to overcome it by ourselves.
  • Getting back to our senses depends on a power that is more than ours.
  • Taking a stand to turn to God for strength to overcome addiction and change the course of your life's direction.
  • Made a full and thorough inventory of our moral capability.
  • Accept our sins in the eyes of everyone including God and work for atonement.
  • Be willing to let go hold on your life control to God.
  • We implore in all modesty before our God for the forgiveness of our mistakes.
  • Prepared a list of all those people we have hurt and willing to compensate them all.
  • Made sufficient amends with these people when possible, except when this would harm them or other close to them.
  • Make a daily examination of ourselves and acknowledge our shortcomings and accept it.
  • Continue to implore the blessing of our almighty God through prayers and reflections to further improve our communication with him.
  • We bring this message to alcohol addicts and carry out these values in our daily life through the spiritual consciousness that emerged from these steps.

The Twelve Traditions

While the 12 steps is directed to each alcoholic, the 12 traditions is directed to the group. They are defined and described in the "Big Book", the main piece of literature the Alcoholics Anonymous have.

A number of 12-step groups have designed their own 12 traditions to suit their circumstance and recovery program.

We can help you find an AA group near you, so pick up the phone and call us today on 0800 246 1509.


The 12 traditions are:

  • The group's well-being is our top priority as it is where our individual success is dependent.
  • The ultimate authority of our group rests in one God and let it be manifested in our group's conscience.
  • Our leaders are our servants, we are governed by our traditions and not by them.
  • There is but 1 requirement to enter the AA, the need to quit drinking.
  • If a matter does not have a general effect on AA or other groups, it should be treated as the responsibility of the group facing it as each group is independent of the other groups.
  • Getting the objective of the group to other ignorant alcoholics is the only goal of the group.
  • AA groups will never finance, lend or give the AA name to a group outside of the community, no issues with money, location or prestige should pull us away from our initial aim.
  • AA groups should be able to support themselves individually, and decline any help from outside organisations.
  • All members of AA should not be paid for his/her services but as a group, we may hire specialized personnel to do a job.
  • AA shouldn't be prearranged; we may form service boards or teams which are in charge of those they help.
  • The group name should never be involved in anything outside its jurisdiction because the group is neutral to external issues.
  • Our matters on external policy are focused on attracting not advertising; we have to preserve our privacy with press, radio, and films.
  • Being anonymous is the foundation of all spiritual traditions, keeping us close to remembering to value principles over personalities.
