Alcoholics Anonymous: A Twelve-Step Program
This is a brief summary of the process and effectiveness of a twelve-step program in helping people recover from addictions. It focuses on Alcoholics Anonymous' basic principles and beliefs simply because that is what the author is most familiar with. Most of these programs are based on the initiative of Alcoholics Anonymous and they have all proven to be very effective when applied rigorously and continuously.
These twelve-step programs are more than just a means of recovery. They are a plan for happy living. Many people do not realize the fact that the twelve steps can be used, combined with a spiritual awareness, to increase any persons view on life. The previous destructive behaviors of participants are of course a main concern but the end result is one of a better lifestyle, a way of living in a manner more consistent with society and personal improvement.
While the author does lay out the basics of the twelve steps, he is mostly concerned with attacking the misconception that these programs are designed only to keep a person abstinent. Barriers are broken with these programs, that otherwise would prevent the blossoming of many of life's gifts and the overall beauty of God's creations. The point is that these steps are available to everyone. All can delve into the concepts and come to have a spiritual awakening that will change them for the better -- forever. This is a blessing that none should ignore.
