Twelve Step Programs provide a spiritual pathway to millions of people throughout the world. The original program, influenced by a variety of world religions, was started by Bill W. and Dr. Bob in Alcoholics Anonymous and was followed by Lois W. and Anne B. as they started AlAnon program for family and friends of those addicted to alcohol. Since those days there have been many variations of Twelve Step Programs dealing with issues involving gambling, overeating, debt, etc.
About: Twelve Step Programs offer tremendous hope and have blessed the lives of countless people whose life circumstances call them to significant change – whether the change involves dealing with addiction or involves changes facing the family members of those struggling with an addiction. In our times, many are attracted to the spirituality of the Twelve Steps who are not dealing with addiction but simply desire to learn the Twelve Step approach to walking through life in a way that is happy, joyous, and free. In times of uncertainty and confusion, the Twelve Steps offer the path to a spiritual awakening. Come join us for a reflection on Twelve Step Spirituality and enter into a conversation about this spiritual path offering a life of gratitude and serenity.
