THE TWELVE STEPS OF
OUR RECOVERY PROGRAM

Do you want to get your own life in order?

In studying and applying the Twelve Step Program to our lives we learn....

To go forward - Follow these steps...


Work at your own pace with an open mind, and willingness to do the best for today, striving for progress not perfection!

1 - We admitted we were powerless over alcohol - that our lives had become unmanageable.

2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understood him.

4 - Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5 - Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6 - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects in character.

7 - Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

8 - Made a list of all persons we had harmed and become willing to make amends to them all.

9 - Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10 - Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
