Modern 12 Step Recovery is a user-friendly, secular guide to the 12 Step program of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). This book includes updated Steps, information from science and psychology, and a working guide to the 12 Step program that makes the program welcoming to people of all ages and beliefs. This “modernization” was achieved without making any fundamental changes to the AA program.
Modern 12 Step Recovery is 100% compatible with pursuing a program of recovery within the traditional AA mutual support network. This includes AA meetings, sponsor relationships, and other activities. The information in this book is also relevant to people in recovery from co-dependency (Al-Anon) and other 12 Step-based programs.
