The Twelve Steps are a program to help people achieve sobriety.  Numerous groups have adopted these guidelines, including Alcoholic’s Anonymous (AA), Narcotic’s Anonymous, etc.

The Twelve Steps are:

  1. Admit powerlessness over the substance misuse.
  2. Believe that a Power greater than oneself could restore sanity.
  3. Make a decision to turn your will and your life over to the care of God, as you understand him.
  4. Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of self.
  5. Admit to God, yourself, and another human being the exact nature of your wrongs.
  6. Become willing to have God remove all these defects from your character.
  7. Humbly ask God to remove shortcomings.
  8. Make a list of all persons harmed by your wrongs and become willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Make direct amends to such people, whenever possible except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continue to take personal inventory and promptly admit any future wrongdoings.
  11. Seek to improve contact with a God of the individual’s understanding through meditation and prayer.
  12. Carry the message of spiritual awakening to others and practice these principles in all your affairs.
