In 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous was the first self-help group to use the “12-steps” as a spiritual program of recovery from addiction. Since then, many other self-help groups have borrowed the 12-steps to help with other issues. A 12-step program can be a great source of information, support and structure if you have an addiction or are close to someone with an addiction. We frequently encourage clients to work a 12-step recovery program along with their therapy at New Leaf. Below is a list of 12-step groups and their contact information.
