The 12-step recovery process (like Alcoholics Anonymous) is grounded in spiritual principles such as surrender, humility, confession, forgiveness, and compassion. The steps have been tested by time and trial and are a pragmatic working system that mirrors Biblical principles. Experience has taught us that 12-step recovery groups are effective in helping many couples and families in their healing and many counselors encourage participation as a supplement to therapy. We support recovery groups as part of the therapeutic process as needed.Additional 12-step Groups
There are other organizations that sponsor Christian 12-step groups and many excellent secular groups. Because the 12 steps are fundamentally spiritual, you may find yourself equally comfortable in a “regular” group. We encourage people to try several groups and find the one(s) that are the best fit. The following sites provide group listings.
