helping people find solutions
The Twelve Step tradition is a time tested method of recovery from
various obsessive-compulsive behaviors which the affected individuals
believe have made their lives unmanageable. These simple tools
for living have been used by millions of people to successfully
change their lives and recover from negative and even life threatening
behaviors. They are based on a set of Spiritual (not religious)
principles originally created by Alcoholics Anonymous in the United
States in 1935. Anonymity as a Spiritual principle is the
underpinning of the Twelve-Step way of life. Sharing and supporting
in groups with like-minded individuals and ongoing fellowship is
a major ingredient in the success of the program.
