Choose Life: 12 Steps to a Brighter Tomorrow.

Our 12 Step Programme is here to help you!

The 12-Step Programme, originally conceptualized by Alcoholics Anonymous in the 1930s, offers a structured pathway to addiction recovery. It begins with the acknowledgment of one’s powerlessness over addiction and the chaos it brings. Participants then embrace the belief in a Higher Power, which can be a personal or spiritual entity, and surrender their will to its guidance. A deep introspection follows, where individuals assess their moral actions and admit their wrongs, not just to themselves but also to this Higher Power and another person.

This self-awareness leads to a genuine desire to change, prompting individuals to list those they’ve harmed and make amends, unless it causes further harm. The journey is continuous, with regular self-assessment and prompt acknowledgment of any wrongs. A strong spiritual connection is nurtured through prayer and meditation, seeking only the Higher Power’s guidance and strength. The culmination of this transformative process is the commitment to share this message of recovery with others and to integrate these principles into every facet of one’s life. Through the 12-Step Programme, individuals not only combat addiction but also embark on a lifelong journey of personal growth, accountability, and community support.
