Your own or someone else's, can ruin lives. We have been in your shoes - uncertain, afraid, unhappy, yet not willing to give in the destruction that addiction brings. We understand how exhausting the struggle can be. So, we turned to a 12 Step program - AA, AlAnon, OA - or a similar support group that uses the 12 Steps as a road to recovery. And, quite simply, life changed for us. We did more than survive. We grew in strength, happiness, love and knowledge. If you need help with addiction - more importantly, if you WANT help - we invite you to check out 12 Step Programs.
