Plans Consisting Of 12 Steps

The Goal Of The 12 Steps

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


This was originally created by the Alcoholics Anonymous group in order to beat alcohol addiction. The program worked very well, and soon enough the success of it mean other addiction groups adapted it and changed it to match their own requirements. The 12-step program is heavily reliant on being spiritual, but despite this, a lot of nonreligious people find this approach extremely useful. Room was made for a variety of explanations of the concept according to how people can explain the idea of a God.


The 12 steps is also used by many other groups such as Debtors Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous as different groups were formed to handle a variety of addiction problems.


The Effectivity Of The Model

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. Nevertheless, the popularity as well as success stories recounting recovery from addiction indicate milestone progress and position of the program.

The basic principles of support system, motivation and accountability are being employed in aid for people who are committed to getting well. The regular meetings and communication within the community helps keep spirits high and take people away from relapsing.


The Twelve Step Plan With Alcoholics Anonymous

Those applying the program can use different techniques as each person decides what will suit him because breaking free from addiction is a permanent struggle. Some of the steps discussed in the program are repeated severally by those using the program.

Below is Alcoholics Anonymous' version:

  • We accepted we were weak over the use of alcohol - that it had become an important, unmanageable part of our lives.
  • Belief in supernatural power to strengthen your resolve to walk through the recovery path.
  • 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.
  • We open up to God, to ourselves and to other humans the errors of our ways and the wrongdoings we have done.
  • We offer ourselves ready before our God so he can fix our disease in character.
  • Asked Him to eradicate our inadequacies.
  • Create a list of everyone we have hurt and pursue a path to make things right with them.
  • Made sufficient amends with these people when possible, except when this would harm them or other close to them.
  • Admit to being wrong when we are so and continue to make inventories of ourselves.
  • 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 ultimate authority of our group rests in one God and let it be manifested in our group's conscience.
  • Our leaders are not reliable servants; they don't lead.
  • AA group membership joining requirement depends on the wish to stop drinking.
  • Every chapter or branch of AA is independent with the exception of matters that impacts other chapters or the entire AA community.
  • AA group members primary mandate - is to share message of hope with alcoholics struggling to stay afloat.
  • AA discourages lending finances or approving other outside facilities to benefit from the organization's structure to avoid conflict of interest that could distract the group from pursuing the overall group's common purpose.
  • External financial help has to be refused because every AA group should completely rely on itself.
  • While our activities may require having specialized professionals in our employment, the group itself does not lean towards professionals.
  • As a result, we should never be organized; but can pull together to make committees and serving boards in response to those they serve.
  • We should not share or have outside opinion on the problems of the outside world; we do not want the AA name being dragged into disrepute.
  • We maintain our anonymity at all media levels and we do not promote any issues or advocacy except that we care for the alcoholics.
  • Our principles come first before personalities, our anonymity lays the foundation of our traditions as a group.
