Alcoholics Anonymous and similar 12 steps classical programs are held in high esteem as standard methods of recovery interventions for all kinds of addiction with a great deal of success.
This was originally created by the Alcoholics Anonymous group in order to beat 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. 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.
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.
It is not easy to infer if the 12 Step model is functional because of the privacy of the program and absence of official research. 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. Many people have recorded success in their struggles with addiction because of the encouragement received from associating with members of the group and the measures put in place to help members of the group.
Recovery from an addiction is a lifelong mission, so there is no right or wrong way to go about the 12 step program, the patient needs to figure out the best way that will work for them. It is common for patients to have to go back and redo certain steps or even take on more than one step at a time.

The 12 traditions are slightly different to the 12 steps, they will speak with the Alcoholics Anonymous as a whole, instead of speaking to the individual. Definitions of traditions are contained in the Big Book, used as reference by Alcoholics Anonymous.
Many other addiction groups have adapted the 12 traditions into their own recovery process.
