Twelve steps program (Alcoholics Anonymous)

 

Overview

Twelve steps program, run by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) provides a framework for self-examination and a road to recovery, free of alcohol. People who are new to AA are not asked to accept or follow these twelve steps in their entirety if they feel unwilling or unable to do so. They will usually be asked to keep an open mind, to attend meetings at which recovered alcoholics describe their personal experiences in achieving sobriety, and to read AA literature describing and interpreting the program.

AA runs culturally appropriate groups and provides materials for Aboriginal peoples.
