What are the 12 Steps? The 12 Steps are used as a pathway to overcome addiction and maintain a healthy and happy life in sobriety. They are suggested to be completed with a sponsor in whatever 12-step group you find most relatable to you. There are many to choose from, but the original group was Alcoholics Anonymous founded in 1935 by Dr. Bob and Bill Wilson. Not long after realizing that this is a family disease, effecting all members of the family, the group Al-anon was created. Al-anon is for struggling family members wanting to cope with living and loving a suffering alcoholic/addict. Learn more about other 12-step groups.
