The Spiritual Journey of 12 Steps

12 Step spiritual journey, Alcoholics AnonymousThe 12 Step spiritual journey takes original components from the standard 12 Step program used by Alcoholics Anonymous, featuring several variations. One strong belief held at Valiant Recovery is that addiction does not have to be for life. Our programs encourage freedom from destructive addictions in order to live life as an ex-addict. The 12 Step program was created in 1935 and is still used today as a foundational program in most rehab treatment centers. When coupled with other therapies, it is proven to have lasting results. The fundamental twelve steps are as follows:

 

  1. Admitting that we were powerless over our addiction and our lives were out of control.
  2. Discovering that a higher power could restore sanity to our lives.
  3. Deciding to give control of our lives to God once we came to know God.
  4. Designing and keeping a moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. Admitting to God, ourselves and others the nature of our wrong-doings.
  6. Preparing for God to remove these defects of character.
  7. Humbly beseeching God to do away with our weaknesses.
  8. Listing the people we injured in order to prepare for making amends with them.
  9. Making direct amends with those we injured, except for those whom this would inflict more injury on.
  10. Continuously evaluating our personal moral inventory in order to admit when we have been wrong.
  11. Searching, through prayer and meditation, for a stronger connection with God, submitting to his will, and praying for the ability to carry it out.
  12. Acknowledging a spiritual awakening through these steps, attempting to share this message with other addicts and putting these concepts into practice in our lives.
