12 Step Facilitation

The 12-step method was originally created by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous and is now used by various organizations and treatment centers to help out people with substance abuse issues. The original 12-step program heavily focused on spirituality but even non-religious groups have found success in using the program.

The 12 steps of the program are:

  • We admitted we were powerless over alcohol–that our lives had become unmanageable.
  • Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  • Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
  • Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  • Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  • Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character
  • Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings
  • Made a list of persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
  • Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  • Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
  • 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.
  • Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Discovery Recovery’s 12-step program is heavily influenced by AA’s original method. While not a compulsory program in our treatment facility, our 12-step program always bore great fruit amongst our clients.
