Programs With Twelve Steps

The Secret Of 12 Steps To Success

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.


How The Model Works

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.


Alcoholics Anonymous And The 12 Steps

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.

As defined by the Alcoholics Anonymous, here are the 12 steps:

  • We accepted we were weak over the use of alcohol - that it had become an important, unmanageable part of our lives.
  • Getting back to our senses depends on a power that is more than ours.
  • Decided to give over our own will and our lives to the trust of God as we see and understand.
  • Soul searching is your first obligation to self evaluation.
  • We have made our mistakes known to ourselves, to God and to other people.
  • Were prepared to have God eradicate all these flaws of personality.
  • We implore him to take away our weaknesses.
  • Make amends to all the people we hurt.
  • If we know that reconciling with them will harm nobody, we do so at any time or place.
  • Accept we are at fault whenever we realize that during personal assessment.
  • Using the methods of praying and meditating, we seek to improve our own conscious and speak with God as we preserve him, asking only for his knowledge of will and power to carry on.
  • Achieving spiritual enlightenment with these steps, we wield ourselves as instruments in helping others who are suffering what we had suffered before.
