How The Model Works

The privacy of Alcoholics Anonymous membership and inadequate research results make it difficult to document the gains and success of AA 12 Step model program. We can only base its effectiveness on the success stories and how it had become popularly adopted by mainstream treatment centres.

The basic principles of support system, motivation and accountability are being employed in aid for people who are committed to getting well. The regularly scheduled gatherings and the sponsorship system show its impact on people who had successfully beaten the problem.


The Twelve Steps Of Aa Alcoholics Anonymous

12 Steps cannot be coped with in a specific way as each one has a particular method of getting help from the program as retrieval is lasts a lifetime. Some of the steps discussed in the program are repeated severally by those using the program.

These are the Alcoholics Anonymous' 12 steps:

  • We now accept the fact that we cannot control our lives but depend on alcohol because we have no control over our reliance on alcohol.
  • We seek the help of a support system with the power greater than us to help us recover.
  • Decided to give over our own will and our lives to the trust of God as we see and understand.
  • Find ourselves and examine our moral strengths.
  • Accept our sins in the eyes of everyone including God and work for atonement.
  • We offer ourselves ready before our God so he can fix our disease in character.
  • Ask God's assistance to mend your ways.
  • Make amends to all the people we hurt.
  • Made sufficient amends with these people when possible, except when this would harm them or other close to them.
  • Accept we are at fault whenever we realize that during personal assessment.
  • Pursued through prayer and contemplation to enhance our conscious interaction with God as we acknowledge him, asking only for awareness of his desire for us and the ability to execute it.
  • Achieving spiritual enlightenment with these steps, we wield ourselves as instruments in helping others who are suffering what we had suffered before.

The Twelve Traditions

The 12 traditions are slightly different to the 12 steps, they will speak with the Alcoholics Anonymous as a whole, instead of speaking to the individual. Definitions of traditions are contained in the Big Book, used as reference by Alcoholics Anonymous.

Many other addiction groups have adapted the 12 traditions into their own recovery process.

We can help you find an AA group near you, so pick up the phone and call us today on 0800 246 1509.


The 12 traditions are:

  • Our shared welfare should be our first priority; individual recovery can only occur with the unity of the AA.
  • For the sake of our group there is one unique power - a caring God as He may manifest Himself in our group morality.
  • Our leaders are our servants, we are governed by our traditions and not by them.
  • The will to give up drinking is the only condition for AA memberships.
  • Every chapter or branch of AA is independent with the exception of matters that impacts other chapters or the entire AA community.
  • Getting the objective of the group to other ignorant alcoholics is the only goal of the group.
  • AA groups will never finance, lend or give the AA name to a group outside of the community, no issues with money, location or prestige should pull us away from our initial aim.
  • AA groups should be able to support themselves individually, and decline any help from outside organisations.
  • We should maintain our "non professionalism", but the service centres we offer can employ specialist workers.
  • AA shouldn't be prearranged; we may form service boards or teams which are in charge of those they help.
  • In its entirety, AA expresses no statements or opinions about anything that are subject to public interest.
  • Our matters on external policy are focused on attracting not advertising; we have to preserve our privacy with press, radio, and films.
  • The principles of the group is above anything else, as our traditions are built on remaining anonymous.
