)-- We live in a society where addiction is rampant. Whether you or someone you love is addicted to drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling or any other vice, there are ways to beat the addiction and get your life back. One such healing method is the twelve-step program. Most people who have never been involved with a twelve-step program have no idea what to expect. The purpose of this book is to de-mystify what goes on in such programs and explain the nature of twelve-step recovery.
In Understanding Twelve-Step Programs, a Quick Reference Guide, Dog Ear Publishing author Bruce Brown describes the basics of the twelve-step program and what it entails. Each short chapter of the book highlights a particular component of the process including: Meetings, Withdrawal, the Twelve Steps, Working the Steps, Sponsorship, Common Prayers and Promises. After reading this reference guide, those who are considering entering a twelve-step program and newcomers who have just begun the process will have a better grasp of what to expect. It is also a useful tool for ministers, therapists and anyone who might want to recommend a twelve-step program to others.
Bruce Brown came into his first twelve-step program in early 1993. Since then he has attended at least ten different types of twelve-step programs. His recovery has involved meetings in fifteen states covering all regions of the U.S. as well as online meetings. He has sponsored over twenty people and worked intensely with ten sponsors of his own. He has worked the Twelve Steps numerous times.
