The 12 Steps of Recovery are considered the corner stone of Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12 Step programs modeled on the AA program. These steps were developed early in the growth of AA by AA members. The steps were develop to help people suffering from alcoholism move from a state of using, denying, and blame to taking control of their individual lives. Using the steps has been a process that has proven successful for many over the years.

The steps map out a series of actions that members take to help themselves move past their secrets, take responsibility for their past choices, create a spiritual foundation, create a model for evaluating daily behavior, a way to fix the wrongs done during active addiction and the understanding that each of us needs to help another person.

This infographic provides you with a quick and easy to read overview of the purpose behind each step and the goal of working the steps.
