Back to Basics of Recovery

May 2 @ 6:00 pm May 4 @ 9:00 pm

A Virtual Event

Wally has rewritten his Back to Basics book for use within ALL 12-Step communities. Basic Recovery is a 2020 version of the 1946 Back to Basics Beginners Meetings that produced a 50-75% recovery rate during the early days of the 12-Step movement. The modified material encompasses all addictive, compulsive and problematic behaviors. The updated passages from the Big Book now reflect gender neutrality.

The Basic Recovery program, which encourages its members to take the steps “early and often,” is an excellent first exposure to working the steps, having a sponsor and finding a “power greater than yourself (that) will solve your problem.”

Note: Bring your Big Book or NA Book and a highlighter.
